Online Strengthening Families programme
This video gives an introduction to the new online Strengthening Families course, and gives you an idea what to expect when you take part!
The online six week parenting programme is designed to give a taster of some of the issues and techniques covered in the full 13 week Strengthening Families, Strengthening Communities programme. With a particular focus on the challenges faced by parents of under 5s, the course is particularly recommended for parents who have found it difficult to attend more traditional parenting programmes, due to work, study, or distance from programme venues. The online course may also be suitable for parents who lack confidence to join a face-to-face group.
The programme is not designed as a replacement version of the SFSC programme, but instead as an introduction to parenting techniques or a complimentary programme to go alongside the 13 week programme. Weekly facilitated online discussions ensure that parents are able to cover the more experiential elements of the SFSC programme, and give opportunities to share the challenges and successes that they have undergone in their parenting.
The online course is free to parents in the High Peak, Middlesbrough and Camden as part of the pilot CANparent voucher programme, whilst parents outside the pilot zone can take part for a fee of £100.
