Family and parenting

We believe that family life matters

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.

Parenting help and support

We help families develop effective parenting skills that help in times of crisis, challenge or change.

Family Wellbeing

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.

We help individuals, couples and families work through the drama with family therapy for healthy lifestyle choices:

  • Private therapy, relationship & parenting support
  • Life choices
  • Mediation & family group conferences
  • Work/life balance
