Time Out for Parents courses

Post image

There's something very special about meeting other mums and dads on one of our courses for parents. The benefits of sharing ideas and experiences with other parents can last a lifetime.

We know that being a parent can be both rewarding and challenging. Our courses are here to support you and help you build a strong and secure relationship with your child, whatever their age.

They include group discussions and practical tasks to help you build on your strengths and will give you time and space to think about any changes you want to make. A helpful, easy-to-read handbook is included with each course.

Our courses are run in community venues and are usually made up of six 2-hour sessions, each led by trained and experienced facilitators.
