                                             Project Description
The purpose of this initiative is to extend the pilot parenting fund project Building Healthier Communities through
Families. The aim of the programme is to provide a „soft approach‟ to mental and emotional well-being that
enables the BME communities to break down barriers to accessing family support services, by strengthening the
capacity of ACP and other BME organisations in the delivery of family support services. The project will:
• Train 10 new Parent Advisor Model Facilitators from ACP and other BME organisations. Initial facilitator training
will be delivered by the Centre for Parent and Child Support. Second training will be delivered by ACP facilitators
and supervised by CPCS.
In Round Two we will extend the Positive Parenting project in Croydon. It aims to improve parents' ability to
support their children by organising:
Monthly Support groups: opportunities for mutual support, exchange of information and ideas on parenting. We
will use different venues borough wide and target up to 20 participants monthly.
Telephone Helpline: AFSS will continue with the helpline to provide quick response, offer support, advice and
information, sign posting, targeting 15 parents per week.
Just for Fathers: a father‟s only group targeting fathers via outreach work and one to one support.
The focus of this project is to support adoptive parents around Contact. 'Contact' describes the link maintained
between the adopted child and the birth parents or other relatives who are unable to parent that child. Maintaining
such links has been widely demonstrated to be in the best interests of the child.
However, contact can be a contentious issue. Children may desire contact but become distressed by it. Adoptive
parents may feel resistant to this source of distress, and feel that its costs outweigh its benefits. Others oppose
the very idea of contact, believing it could undermine their bond with the child. Where contact-related anxiety and
heightened emotions are not dealt with, contact can become divisive and put additional pressure on families
Alone in London would like to provide a two pronged project. It will combine a direct front-line service that will
provide support to families and parents and a second tier service to provide structures for strengthening the
network of voluntary and community services working with parents and families in Greenwich, Southwark and
Hackney and highlight and promote good practice in this field The project will be delivered through the following
posts who will also provide supervision for specific volunteer roles for the project. Family and Parent Support
Officer (two posts). The aim of the posts will be to use Family Mediation to decrease family conflict and assist
families to reconcile, with the ultimate goal of reducing youth homelessness. Our team of mediators are
Our Parenting Fund project is aimed at socially excluded and geographically remote families and individuals who
are affected by Asperger syndrome. We aim to:
• Boost parental self-esteem
• Prevent family breakdown
• Prevent mental health problems in both parents and children:
o      by providing early response support to requests for assistance
o      by advising on practical behavioural strategies
We want to develop a range of services that support parents living with HIV in caring for their children. Included
are: support groups, parenting sessions, volunteer befriending and outreach work. In working alongside parents
with HIV we want to help them address factors, such as stigma, isolation, bereavement, ill health and asylum
seeking, that can impair their confidence and skills as carers. Using peer support networks we expect to share
knowledge and information, increase skills and self esteem and foster enable parents to enjoy family life with their
children. Our programme is being will delivered in partnership between George House Trust. Service users will
have their specialist HIV needs met by George House Trust and their child care needs addressed by Barnardo's.
We are using the grant to build on our successful work with Dads in a small area of Derby by expanding into the
Sinfin, Alvaston and Chellaston wards and broadening the focus of our work.
We are doing this by:
• Building and supporting informal support networks for Dads e.g. dads drop in for coffee and chat, sports
sessions, dads and toddlers, Saturday brunch clubs.
• Delivering Webster Stratton parenting programmes for fathers. Some of these might be with dads and their
partners and some with just dads. We have found in our current work there has been demand for both.

Our aim is to maximise the potential of children who have conditions affecting their social, sensory,
communication, motor and learning abilities. Using the Parenting Fund grant we will provide support for the
parents of these children in some of the most disadvantaged communities in Birmingham. Our programme will:
• Undertake first assessments and reassessments using an inter-disciplinary measure of the medical,
educational and social aspects of the child's development
• Teach parents/carers (average 2 per child) intervention plans, practical coping strategies and parenting
techniques, to be performed at home
We are using the Parenting Fund grant to employ specialist staff to help women get parenting support in their first
language. This is vital as so much of our work is focused on rebuilding women‟s confidence in their ability to care
for their children. The project will offer shared play sessions with women and their children. More intensive one to
one work will be carried out in the refuge and at the counselling centre. Staff would also help women access
other key services. Women and children would be supported to take up other relevant services, particularly ones
which they can continue to access after resettling back into the community.
Parents of disabled / SEN children are often isolated, confused and frustrated by lack of support. They would
welcome more advice on how best to care .for their child. To cope with this many parents form informal self
help/support groups, which grow through word of mouth, relying on overstretched parents, limited capacity. Often
operating without funding these groups may be isolated from mainstream support, advice and referral. In addition
minority ethnic parents face cultural and linguistic barriers. To address this locally our part time consultant will:
• identify these groups and their needs
• map them against existing voluntary and statutory sector provision
We are using our Round 2 grant to build on the findings of our Round 1 Parenting Project in the following ways:
• Continued delivery of Parenting Skills workshops, specific to the needs of the parents with drug/alcohol
problems, within Broadreach House residential and Aftercare services
• To offer individually tailored support packages to parents through all stages of treatment. This may include
practical and emotional support, facilitation of access visits, skills development etc
• To focus on the needs of teenage children of drug/alcohol using parents, many of who are already misusing
substances, resulting in physical and emotional damage and high risk of becoming young parents

The Parenting Fund grant is to expand our extremely successful family support centre which provides support for
families at risk of breaking up. We aim:
• To promote safe, healthy and positive family life via preventative work and a range of early intervention
strategies
• To protect children and parents who are vulnerable
• To reduce/remove the likelihood of crisis situations that lead to serious family breakdown
Our objective is to enable families to manage their changing needs in the short and longer term. We are to

Our Round 2 project aims to strengthen the co-ordination and development of parenting support services across
Newcastle. We are doing this by employing parenting education and support co-ordinators (PESCos) to work
across the city. They are:
• Identifying, mapping and co-ordinating providers of parenting support in each of the 3 geographical areas of
Newcastle
• Setting up regular meetings between parents and service providers
• Targeting gaps and duplication in local areas in parenting provision
In partnership with the Asian Health Agency, CEN will work with parents who have children excluded from school
in Croydon. It will develop their parenting skills and attitudes towards education so their children develop positive
attitudes to school and authority. The project aims for successful and sustained reintegration. We do this by:
• offering advocacy or representation at governors‟ hearings
• working with parents whose children are at risk of exclusion by offering mediation, support and advice
• running the Strengthening Families, Strengthening Communities programme for parents of children excluded
from school (2 thirteen week programmes).
Young LGBT people explore their sexuality at an increasingly early age. In an ideal world, the parents of lesbian
gay bisexual transgender young people (LGBT) are best placed to provide the positive environment for young
people who are beginning to discover their sexuality. In reality, the parents of LGBT children have little real
understanding of sexuality issues, are poorly personally equipped to support their children's 'coming out' and
often find themselves the victims of homophobia and discrimination as 'parents of gay children'. Parents in the
sexuality equation are neglected. Membership consultation estimates 25 per borough per year across and 50
seen through specialist trans groups and schools. With the exception of PACE with its national brief, the support

We are working across Cornwall with families who have children (aged 0-19) with any kind of disability or long
term medical condition. We expect to provide short term support to parents of disabled children who need
information and advice to care for their children but are unable to seek or find it. This includes parents who have
low literacy or social skills and/or those who have been unable to access help from statutory sources. Some
parents may be frustrated or angry and disillusioned, some live in socially isolated areas and some are
floundering with no support having been overwhelmed by the maze of services.
Our workers help parents identify their difficulties and possible solutions and may negotiate with local services on
In Round 1 we began the expansion of On Track beyond the confines of the original three participating schools by
offering a range of parenting programmes to the wider west Thamesmead community and we piloted
programmes at Eltham Green, Greenwich's full service extended school. The four schools not served by On
Track are very keen to participate as they have high levels of unmet need. In Round 2 we are expanding our work
by removing existing 'qualification' barriers, providing open-access programmes, direct casework and school
attendance provision to the whole of West Thamesmead and to build on our experience in delivering secondary
transition and teenage-focused programmes to parents.

CWRT is to use the Parenting Fund grant to employ a worker to support the mothers who come to the refuge
during their stay and also for a short time after they move on. The project offers support and advice on parenting
to women who come to the refuge. Their concerns include:
• Lack of confidence in their own ability to parent as a result of experiencing domestic abuse
• Support in dealing with behaviour their children can exhibit following exposure to abuse and violence
• Lack of experience in dealing with outside agencies e.g. new school, social services
• Stress and upset can cause conflict between children and mothers living in a refuge

Derman provides parenting support to Kurdish, Turkish and Cypriot Turkish parents in Hackney. For people in
these communities, parenting issues are particularly complex and parents experience multiple disadvantages.

knowledge and confidence and enable them to provide a nurturing family environment where children and parents
can achieve their full potential.
We are set to run:
• Parenting support groups covering issues including:
This is a programme delivered in partnership between Redcar Parents, Pregnancy Support and DISC.

Established in 1985, DISC is an independent North of England based charity that provides services for deprived
and excluded young people and adults. Many of those we support have fallen through the net of statutory
provision. DISC provides services for both adults and young people. We are using the Parenting Fund grant to
provide services for young parents through referrals received from Redcar Parents and Pregnancy Support.
Our aim is to address the challenges faced by Black and minority ethnic (BME) parents of teenagers in East
Birmingham.
The objectives of the project are to:
• engage with BME parents and support them in strengthening their parenting skills
• raise awareness and understanding of issues relating to crime, education and health
• develop a parenting programme customised to meet local need
• develop resources to support parenting skills development

This programme aims to improve the engagement of fathers whose children are involved with social care
agencies, in the care of, and decisions about, their children's lives. It will build upon the Round 1 Fathers Matter
project by developing a specialist advice and support infrastructure for fathers and paternal relatives living in the
23 areas and by supporting improvements in how local organisations and practitioners work with fathers.
Specifically we will: - develop a training course for social care workers and managers, in conjunction with Fathers
Direct, entitled 'addressing child welfare concerns - working with fathers'. Following a pilot with practitioners in
Hackney, it will be promoted in the local areas, with free places for small voluntary agencies. - support 16 fathers
The project aims are:
• To improve services for parents who are socially excluded due to mental illness
• Strengthen the support network for parents with mental ill health by linking hospital and community services thus
reducing isolation
• Supporting parents to meet their child's needs and facilitating secure attachments for parents with new babies

Continuation of Volunteers for Parents Voices (VPV) project, empowering parents of disabled children by linking
them with trained volunteers to negotiate services.
We are developing VPV by:
• Recruiting an Asian family support worker to raise the profile of volunteering among Asian families
• Help to organise regional conference for professionals sharing good practice when working with Asian families
with disabled children
• Organise a conference for Asian parents delivered in Punjabi/Urdu
A Family Group Conference (FGC) is an empowering decision and planning process where the parents, family
and child/young person formulate their own plans using information and support provided by professionals.
FGC‟s embrace a whole family approach. The family is defined in its broadest sense to include extended family,
good friends and community networks. Parents and families are experts on their situation, and are best placed to
find solutions that will work for them, given the right information from professionals. By finding their own solutions
and identifying their own support, families are more likely to create sustainable plans and become reslient. The
intention is also to strengthen families' relationship with support services.
We are using our Parenting Fund Grant to continue and expand our Parents of Teenagers Support Service.
POTSS is working closely with the Ormiston Trust service to provide an Emotional Wellbeing program for young
people.
Our aims are to:
• Increase the capacity of parents and carers in Peterborough to meet the needs of their older children
• Strengthen the confidence of parents and carers to meet new challenges
• Promote support networks of parents of older children in the community
We are building on our Well Family Service based in Paston by expanding it to the south of the city where we will
focus Hampton New Town, an area with significant unsupported transition needs.
It will be an integrated service for families and replicate the model of partnership working elsewhere in the city
between Well Family and the Family Hurdles parenting programme.
The service provides:
• Initial advice and information e.g. welfare rights, education, advice, vocational training, housing support, short
counselling and problem solving sessions and brief solution focused therapy

The Well Family service will offer support to parents and children in need in the Stoke and Baylis area of Slough
via a team of Family Support Coordinator. The service will be offered mainly in people's own homes through a
home visiting service, but also in local community venues, i.e. Children‟s Centre and youth centre. It will work with
disadvantaged families where parents are experiencing difficulties with parenting, domestic violence, substance
misuse, families where there are children with special needs, and where there are language barriers. The service
will include:
• Individual support work. This may be practical or emotional and will include advocacy work and information and
The service is aimed at socially excluded women in Southwark who are particularly vulnerable during their
pregnancy. We will provide intensive support throughout their pregnancy and the first year of their child's life to
improve the women's mental health, enable them to be part of a local peer support network and improve the
outcomes for their children.
The target group includes:
• women who have an existing diagnosed mental health problem
• women who have been identified as vulnerable to postnatal depression
We are to continue and develop the successful Speakeasy programme for parents and carers. The Open College
Network (OCN) accredited Speakeasy course has been running in a number of centres in England since May
2002 with 2000 parents completing the course to date. Speakeasy provides parents with education, information
resources and support to enable them to take on the role of sex educators and provide sex education in the
home. In a group setting, parents develop their own knowledge and skills in relation to sexual health. Speakeasy
is particularly targeted in areas of multiple deprivation and high teenage pregnancy rates. The ultimate aim of this
work is to change the climate around sex and relationship education in the home.

The Parenting Fund grant is to extend the range and depth of our direct services to parents with mental health
problems who are caring for young children by developing awareness of and support for adult couple
relationships. We want to do this by:
• Training the facilitators of our groups for postnatal depressed mothers and parenting workshops to be alert to
relationship problems these parents may be having with their partners
• Running short course parenting workshops for couples with young children thus mobilising the resources in their
partnerships to support them as parents
Groundwork Stoke on Trent works with young people, predominantly male, but not exclusively, on a number of
youth and employment intervention schemes. We offer a wide range of life skills training in order to ensure
progression for the beneficiaries and clients into employment or further training. One of the areas of life skills and
capacity building we would like to develop is working with young men who are about to become fathers for the
first, and sometimes second time at a very young age. We would like to entrench sexual health advice and
positive parenting skills into all the programmes mentioned earlier and to have dedicated one to one support for
the first time parents, especially fathers, as this is our main client group. Part of the project will also be working

sexuality, and social skills. These will empower parents by strengthening their knowledge of their child's condition
and developing the skills they need to enable their children to live rewarding lives. We will run some of the
workshops especially for parents from specific minority groups using interpreters if necessary.

Our project focuses on families where parents are experiencing mental health problems, alcohol or substance
misuse or where domestic violence has occurred. In particular we plan to work with families where children and
young people have been adversely affected by having to care for family members experiencing any of these
problems. This group can be hidden because of the stigma and fear of the possible consequences of statutory
services involvement.
We have recruited two family support workers. One has expertise in Mental Health work and the other in
supporting substance and alcohol misusers.

We are using the grant to employ a Parenting Coordinator to drive the development of the Parenting Strategy for
Leicester. This work will feed into the Parenting Strategy Partnership Board, a sub group of the Leicester Children
and Young People‟s Strategic Partnership. We will:
• develop a network of family, parents, voluntary groups and partners to inform the strategy and service provision
in creative and innovative ways
• train, support and develop the capacity of parenting groups to inform and enhance policy and decision making
• link, coordinate and develop parent run and parent engaging voluntary organisations
Voluntary Action Stoke on Trent is a capacity building project to establish a genuine partnership approach to
parenting support, within the framework of the parenting strategy and in the light of the importance attached to
parenting in the CYO partnership plan and the Local Area agreement. The project is set to:
• build capacity in one of the partners to the Children and Young People's Partnership to benefit a range of
children and young people's partner organisations
• support the development and implementation of the parenting strategy
• establish citywide quality assurance standards regarding best practice in parenting support

Our focus is providing support for vulnerable, socially excluded young women who are parents and experiencing
emotional difficulties. We are offering counselling sessions and support to help them strengthen their parenting
skills. The aim is for them to:
• Feel better about themselves
• Improve their self esteem and confidence
• Support them in changing their behaviour and relationships by helping them to address the negative influences
on their lives.
