Please continue to submit Early Help assessments and TAF paperwork (which can be dowloaded from the document page of the local offer) to

Who are we?

We are part of the Early Help team who deliver evidence based programmes and groups.

What do we do?

We offer a programme for parents and children aged 10 to 14 to come to together to jointly attend this group. The programme aims to help families to work together to solve problems, create and sustain a positive relationship and have fun together as a family. It supports parents to manage misbehaviour, by using appropriate rewards and consequences and encourage and support their children to make good choices and decisions and praising positive behaviour. The programme supports young people to make positive choices and decisions, understand the need for rules and encourages young people to recognise their strengths and use look at how they can use those to manage difficulties.

This programme is suitable for young people with additional needs
