Parents really are the most influential factor in a child and young person’s life and all children test the limits and get angry.  It’s not always easy for parents; kids don’t come with an instruction manual!

Parenting programmes are proven to be effective at helping all parents to increase positive relationships, promote children’s development and manage behaviour in constructive caring ways.


The Suite of Parenting Programmes 


What makes Walsall's Parenting offer unique is that we recognise that one size does not fit all – different programmes will meet different parent’s needs. Because we recognise this fact,  we have adopted  several different evidence based programmes. 

We have a number of programmes to meet parents needs depending on whether their families  needs are Universal or Targeted/ Specialist.


Universal Parenting is designed for any parent living in Walsall who wants advice around parenting, relationships with their children and children's emotional and social development. These are parents that  feel they are doing ok in there parenting role but require a little bit of additional support or information about being a parent. Click the universal box below to see what programmes best meet the needs of you and your family. 


Targeted/ Specialist Parenting are more intensive programmes for parents/carers currently recieving support from Children's Services, such as parents with a Social Worker or Lead Professional. These would be parents that feel they require a lot of support. Click the targeted box below to see what programmes best meet the needs of you and your family.
