Parenting Programmes (delivered by parenting staff within the EI&FSS)

Parenting workers within the Early Intervention & Family Support Service (EI&FSS) deliver a range of parenting programmes to help and support parents to develop better relationships with their children.

The programmes tend to be delivered within groups of up to 12 parents and are usually run from community based venues such as children centres and schools.  There are always a minimum of two qualified facilitators for each group and there is always ample opportunity to speak privately with the facilitators before and after the group sessions.

The programmes use a variety of methods to help parents gain new knowledge , skills and insights, including discussion, video, specialist speakers and information sharing within their group sessions.  Courses include:

  • Incredible Years programme (Managing Children’s Behaviour) for parents/carers of children aged 1-3 years.
  • Incredible Years’ programme (Managing Children’s Behaviour) for parents/carers of children aged 3 – 6 years.
  • 'Incredible Years' programme (managing children's behaviour) for parents/carers of children aged 6-12 years.
