About Us

This is the home of the Strengthening Families, Strengthening Communities Parent Programme. If you are a parent or carer and are looking for access to a parenting programme, a course to help you better manage the relationships at home or support with being a parent, then you are in the right place.

SFSC courses are designed to support you to raise happy and successful children by getting access to information and strategies for bringing up your children and managing your relationships, meeting other parents, and making sure your voice is heard.

We have a range of programmes you can join, from online individual learning, through to group face to face sessions.  This website will help you find the course that is right for you as well as explore written, audio and video resources to help you with being a parent.

The Programme

SFSC parenting courses are for all parents and carers; whether you have a newborn baby, a school age child or a teenager.

Our parental conflict courses are for all co parents: parents who live together, parents who live apart and for people who also have a parenting role, like grandparents or step-parents.

You can complete a six week course online or a longer in person course by joining a group in person.
