General
Interest

Give all parents - mothers, fathers and other carers - information, ideas and an opportunity for discussion about parenting issues including how to keep their child safe, happy and learning.

In addition to sessions which focus on logistical arrangements schools/organisations need to provide at least one extra session with a strong focus upon the emotional needs of parents/carers (this means giving them an opportunity to air their views, be listened to and where necessary, signposting for extra help). 

Anything that can promote the emotional wellbeing of the child and the family and help support their relationships is included here.  You may have other ideas that can specifically support your community.
