This Month's Focus - March 2019

 

Support for the Family

 

Parenting is one of the most rewarding but challenging jobs any of us will ever do, yet we get no training for it. Families work hard at being strong, stable and loving but sometimes life can throw additional challenges at us that mean that we need help and support beyond our family network.

 

Thankfully there are many organisations that now offer support, from advice and helping you to feel that you are not alone, to practical help to ease the pressure. All families deserve to be happy and healthy. If you are struggling, don’t be afraid to reach out and ask for help. The internet is also a great place to find information that can help with specific issues such a debt, emotional wellbeing or positive parenting. There are also practical parenting programmes (PPP) where you can meet other parents facing similar issues and gain strength from sharing with each other in a group. 

 

The links below provide information and advice on a range of issues and give access to organisations who can offer support when life becomes challenging.
