Having someone to talk to can relieve the pressures of everyday life. We are here to listen and support you in finding answers to help you and your family.
We understand that parenting on your own can bring up lots of challenges. Separating from a partner can cause upset in different ways for you and your children. Wider family relationships can become strained. And as children grow and develop, their needs change, which can affect their behaviour and be difficult to manage. At times, you might feel overwhelmed with everything going on in your life and the stress might impact on your physical and mental health.
Our local Family Support
Groups don’t suit everyone; sometimes parents need more individualised help with practical and emotional issues. We will spend time with you to find out how we can best support you to address any issues you are facing.
Our local Family Support teams have lots of experience supporting parents and their families with everyday situations, as well as through more complex and difficult times. Having someone to talk to can relieve the pressures of everyday life. We are here to listen and support you in finding answers to help you and your family.
Our support workers can help you set goals and, by meeting with your regularly, they can support you to reach them. One-to-one support can be an important step in becoming more engaged in your community and more able to start your journey towards a new or better job or enrolling in further education.
Our local teams will share information and introduce you to local projects and organisations that can help make bringing children up on your own a bit easier.
We can also support you to seek specialist support from other agencies, if needed, and accompany you to appointments.
We can arrange to see you at times that suit you the best. One-to-one support may be offered in our local offices or we can meet you in you in your own home or another venue where you’d feel comfortable.
