Family Workers offer support and advice to parents / carers on issues such as children's challenging behaviour, establishing routines, raising self-esteem, increasing confidence and improving family relationships.
Support and advice may be offered through individual support and / or a range of parenting courses. Support can be delivered in the home or at other locations agreed with the worker, including schools, Child and Family Centres and early years settings. Parenting courses typically involve attendance at a number of sessions (between 8 and 14, depending on the course) and are offered across Cambridgeshire. All courses are free to attend.
Parents of children aged 0 to 19 years (up to 25 years if child has disability) who need support and help with their parenting.
Referral to a Family Worker can be through your local Child and Family Centres, your child's school or via a professional working with you. Parents can also self refer for the parenting courses.
