3. Family Fun Days

These are held in school holidays and aim to promote good family relationships by offering organised family fun activities. It is also a good opportunity for us to get feedback from the children regarding our service.

4. Families & Schools Together Programme (FAST)

FAST is an award winning set of preventive/early intervention after-school programs that has dramatically changed the learning climate at schools and communities all over the world. First released in 1990, this model has changed the way many people think of parent involvement, interventions and how to keep kids safe, drug-free and in school.

The FAST Program will:-

• Connect parents and kids to their schools and communities
• Promote community service and voluntary participation
• Guide parents in building personal success assets in their kids
• Build skills and change attitudes through experiential learning
• Preserve precious classroom time through school focused, extracurricular parental involvement
• Assure that capable parents remain the primary agents of protection for their kids

To apply for Parenting support families can either be referred by another external agency or make a self-referral.

We provide in-house courses throughout the year. However, we can also provide parenting courses on a contractual basis to external agencies and organisations and can adapt our services and courses to suit the needs of their service users.
