We recognise the important role that group work can play in reducing isolation and loneliness and also in supporting young parents to develop new skills, talents and aspirations.
For parents who are looking to meet other families and grow in confidence we have a variety of groups including our Wellbeing Group which focuses on parents mindfulness, self-esteem and confidence and Steps to Grow which is a group for parents and children together where they can enjoy taking part in a wide range of activities, building relationships and exploring nature and play.
We also offer a range of other group work opportunities for young parents which support them to learn new skills. We work in conjunction with a range of partners to plan and deliver different topics throughout the year depending on the parent’s interests. These may include topics such as; Mental Health First Aid, literacy and writing workshops, photography, art, peer mentor training, health and wellbeing topics and SQA awards.
Parents are supported to catalogue their achievements and consider how these might inform their future choices and next steps.
