Are you a parent with children aged 3-18?
Do you want to help shape services for the future?
Come and be part of a study to promote family wellbeing!
Halifax Opportunities Trust, Sure Start Children’s Centres & North Halifax Partnership are working with UCL and Race Equality Foundation to offer Strengthening Families Strengthening Communities free Parenting Programme.
This free, 13 week course aims to help you to
- Build positive family relationships
- Manage anger and stress
- Implement effective discipline strategies
- Gain confidence and communication skills
- Understand your child’s development
- Recognise and value your family and cultural traditions
- Meet others and share ideas
The course is aimed at parents, step parents, grandparents and foster carers who have got a child aged between 3-18.
There will be two groups, starting on Tuesday February 2nd, 2021 at the Elsie Whiteley Innovations centre and Thursday February 4th, 2021 at the Holy Nativity Church in Mixenden.
Another course is scheduled for September 2021.
The programme is part of a research study from the University College London: The Together Study. This means that a researcher would like to talk to you before the programme starts and at three time points after the programme has finished. You will received £10 voucher for each questionnaire you complete with a researcher.
Part of the research is that parents are randomly allocated to either the group starting in February or allocated to a group starting in September. (The researchers can explain more about why) – a computer decides who takes part in the group now or in the group later and the decision cannot be influenced.
