Strengthening Families Strengthening Communities (SFSC) Inclusive Parenting Programme

Do you find yourself asking:

  • How can I motivate my child to try their best at school?
  • How do I build a better relationship with my child?
  • How do I stop my teenager getting involved in drinking, drugs, antisocial behaviour or truanting?
  • How do I encourage my partner to participate in my child’s life?
  • How do I put boundaries in place with my child?
  • What youth and parent services are available in my community?

The programme will provide:

  • A safe space to share your views and be listened to
  • An opportunity to get information and ideas to help with decisions about bringing up your children
  • New skills, and support in developing your confidence
    connections with the wider communities and services in your area.

Strengthening Families, Strengthening Communities (SFSC) is an inclusive evidence-based parenting programme, designed to promote protective factors which are associated with good parenting and better outcomes for children.

SFSC has enjoyed success with parents from a number of backgrounds, including Black and minority ethnic parents, teenaged parents, parents with learning disabilities and parents from marginalised communities, including those with experience of drugs, alcohol or violence.

This is a violence prevention parenting programme.

The delivery of the programme is tailored for parents living in areas affected by gangs, gun and knife crime; living in areas impacted by radicalisation and extremism; and for delivery with a focus on sexual health and developing healthy relationships.

The SFSC is available as a (13-week) face to face programme, which is delivered in a group setting.

The SFSC programme is also accredited through the Open College Network.

This means that you can gain credits for taking part in the programme, which you can use when you apply for a job or if you want to go back into education.
