Bedford Borough Council’s Early Help team have rolled out their May to July programme for their Triple P Parenting offer, a service supporting parents and carers with children and young people by offering a range of information and support from workshops to seminars.
Through our Early Help Parenting Offer, we can provide supportive action for families at every stage of their lives. Our Group Triple P is an 8-week programme for any parent or carer with a child aged 0-12 years old. We also offer an 8-week programme for parents and carers with teenagers offering advice and knowledge to improve communication and manage conflict. Our latest offer – Family Transitions Triple P is ideal for parents affected by separation or divorce and worried about the effect upon their children. The course focuses on how to cope positively with stress and provides skills to resolve conflicts with former partners in order to continue to co-parent effectively even though separated.
Triple P sessions and workshops will be delivered in schools and local community venues in Bedford from May to July. If you are unable to follow our 8-week programme, you may prefer to come along to our Triple P discussion groups with topics from ‘Developing Good Bedtime Routines’ to ‘Getting Teenagers to Co-operate’.
Cllr Henry Vann, Portfolio Holder for Education said: “Supporting families at every stage can make all the difference to the life chances of our children and young people. Our Early Help Team is there to support parents and equip them with the key skills to deal with the challenges they may face in raising children and young people and I would urge people get in touch if they need this support.”
