Triple P - Positive Parenting Programme

What is Triple P?

Positive Parenting Programme, more commonly known as Triple P, is a behaviour support programme and is available to all parents living in Nottingham City who have children aged 0-19. Through our programmes we will support you to choose the level of support you need and topics that are right for you.


Who is Triple P for?

Triple P is for all parents. Most of the time parenting is rewarding, but sometimes it can be exhausting and hard work. The Triple P programme is proven to help parents and carers who want/need support with their child’s behaviour.


How can Triple P help me?

By taking part in a Triple P programme you will:

  • Talk about your child’s behaviour and its impact on family life
  • Learn simple and practical behaviour strategies and parenting tips
  • Learn how to adapt tips and strategies to the needs of your family

  • Build a behaviour strategy toolkit to use now and in the future


What Triple P Programmes can I access?

One-to-one sessions (Tip sheets)

Tip sheets can be delivered in 1 session but could take up to 4 sessions depending on the needs of you and your family. Tip sheets focus on specific topics around children’s behaviour. During the session you will meet a Triple P practitioner who can deliver the sessions anywhere, including at home or you can opt for delivery to take place over the telephone. From these session, will you take away a tip sheet to refer back as well as a plan of how you will implement the Triple P strategies and tips at home.

Discussion groups

Discussion groups are a one off session around a particular topic. The discussion group will be led by our Triple P trained practitioners and you will meet with a small group of parents and carers who are experiencing similar behaviours. The Triple P practitioners delivering the discussion group will offer practical advice and support for tackling a specific behaviour through discussions, activities and video clips.

The discussion groups we offer are:

  • Hassle-free shopping
