- Help school staff by providing early advice and support to families in relation to their needs e.g. behaviour, parenting, bereavement, positive play, attendance.
- School based, group parenting programmes such as Handling Children’s Behaviour and Family Links Nurture programme.
Support parents on a one to one and group basis to:
- set and maintain appropriate boundaries and provide positive role modelling;
- resolve conflicts within their relationship which prevent effective family functioning;
- reduce stress and increase their capacity to cope.
