Family & Parenting

Effective parenting skills that help in times of crisis, challenge or change

Parents, carers and families are the most important influence on outcomes for children and young people. We want all children to benefit from confident, positive and resilient parenting, from birth right through to the teenage years.

The Institute of Wellbeing aims to ensure that access to support for parents becomes routine, particularly at key points in a child or young person’s life. We support parents by providing access to high standard universal support in the form of information, advice, training and signposting to other services.

The Institute of Wellbeing recognises the importance of actively involving parents in the development of children and young people’s education and wellbeing by helping parents to understand what they can do at home to work with the school. Working in partnership with emerging Children’s centres and extended schools, The Institute of Wellbeing is able to support and involve parents at all stages of a child’s learning and development.

The Classic definition of family, according to sociologists is “a social group characterised by common residence, economic cooperation, and reproduction. It includes adults of both sexes, at least two of whom maintain a socially approved sexual relationship, and one or more children, own or adopted, of the sexually cohabiting adults.

Don’t forget the children


It has been said that creativity is a process that maximises learning, makes connections across all our senses and the wider world. Creativity develops our capacity to see the world in a new light.

We believe that every child and young person counts and has a right to that sort of creativity. We have developed a number of innovative programmes to help children and young people nurture their natural gifts and talents:

  • URSPECIAL & After School Programmes
  • Mentoring & Self-Development Programmes with T.E.D
  • Parental Involvement, Community support & Volunteering

We are committed to working alongside parents and local communities in creating opportunities for our youth to develop the necessary life skills to realise their dreams and reach their full potential.

The Institute of Wellbeing believes that every child deserves to have full access to healthcare facilities.

With all the debates and discussions on why and how children should become healthier, we believe that everyone who cares (parents, carers, teachers and doctors) should have access to relevant information on health.

Some steps only parents can take – such as serving healthy meals or ensuring the right precautions are taken for infections. Embracing a nutritional approach will help strengthen their immune systems as well as possibly resist the degenerative diseases in adulthood.

The Institute of Wellbeing believes that all children deserve to be safe at all times. Most injuries to young children happen in the home.

They need to have a safe environment because they are too young to be aware and take care of their own safety.

This is an adult’s responsibility, so it is very important to make your home as safe as possible.
