Parenting Programmes

 

Wiltshire Council provides the Triple P - Positive Parenting Programme.

Triple P is designed to give parents the skills they need to raise confident, healthy children and teenagers and to build stronger family relationships. Triple P doesn’t tell people how to parent. Rather, it gives parents simple and practical strategies they can adapt to suit their own values, beliefs and needs. The benefits can be dramatic and long-lasting.

Triple P Groups

Triple P and Time Out for Parents Groups - group cancellations in response to Coronavirus

All parents and carers who have been affected by a group cancellation during lockdown will be offered alternative places at another group once the Coronavirus crisis has eased and it is safe to resume holding groups around the county.

We are still accepting new referrals for future groups so please continue to share information about Triple P with parents and carers. And do get in touch if I can be of any help regarding this or with any questions.

If you’d like more information and to discuss the groups further please contact Claire Turner on: 07767 230 082

The seven sessions are written by parents and professionals with input from many different families with experience of children with special needs. They aim to help support you in meeting your child’s needs, focusing on children aged between 3 to 11 years with a disability or special needs, particularly those who have learning, developmental and behavioural issues.

A medical diagnosis is not required for a parent or carer to attend and the groups are free of charge. These groups are being offered in partnership with the Wiltshire Parent Carer Council.
