We have awarded a grant of £59,854 over three years for Family Lives' new Parents Together in Lambeth programme. The programme will focus on early years and will provide a range of parenting skills groups, individual support and courses for parents including 'Helping Children Learn', 'Bringing Up Confident Children’, and ‘Let’s Play’.
Overall, the programme aims to support parents to build positive relationships with their children, increase their self-esteem and confidence in parenting and therefore enable them to better support their child’s educational development. 60 low income Lambeth parents each year will attend a 5-6 week programme, with 8 parents being offered additional further individual support. Also each year, a new peer support group of parents will be set up.
