Changing Futures North East welcomes an exciting new initiative to Hartlepool called Parents as Partners! The programme will be delivered by Changing Futures alongside partner agencies, Tavistock Relationships, Hartlepool Borough Council, Belle Vue Comunity Sports and Youth service.
Parents as Partners is a supportive, welcoming and free group work course for parents who want to resolve issues that might be affecting their children’s wellbeing.
Are you worried that stress in your relationship is affecting your children?
This free 16 week course will give you:
• A safe space to think through difficulties
• New, more constructive ways of resolving your differences
• Support from other parents in similar situations
What does Parents As Partners Involve?
Both parents attend a 16 week course (2 hours a week) where you will take part in activities and discussions that will encourage you both to explore issues around your parenting with other parents experiencing similar situations. The sessions are delivered by trained female and male co-workers and parents are supported by a Family Support Worker outside of the sessions.
This course is for parents who:
• Are either living together or separated
• Have at least one child under the age of 11
• Are over the age of 18
We welcome referrals from Parents as well as agencies working with parents.
