Children are our future and parents/carers are the most important people in every child’s life. By supporting parents we are hoping to give children the best possible start in life. Parenting support is anything that helps parents in their important job of bringing up their children. This support might be information about child development or about local services, advice and guidance about different aspects of parenting, parent discussion groups and support groups, sessions for parent groups about specific issues (like getting children to sleep through the night or building positive relationships with teenagers), parenting courses, family support workers working in families’ homes and much more. Wrexham has a Parenting Team which co-ordinates this parenting support and is also responsible for developing Wrexham Parenting Strategy.
There are lots of organisations in Wrexham which provide support for parents in their parenting role. Some of these organisations are part of the Local Authority (council), some are part of the Health Trust, some are voluntary organisations and some are based in communities. This website gives you information and links to these services to help you as a parent or carer. We also have Directory of Services to support parenting and families in Wrexham.
