Parenting & early attachment
Tameside’s Parenting Offer strives to support families when it is needed most. We offer a range of courses and services to suit the needs of all parents and children in Tameside.
We have a robust and multi-agency parenting panel in place to ensure all referrals are screened thoroughly making sure the right courses are available to all.
The council’s vision for the ‘Grow with Me’ parenting offer is one where all parents, children and their families will receive the support that is right for them as early as possible, to enable them to deal with problems and prevent issues escalating.
The parenting offer is based on a whole-family approach and all interventions will be evidence based. Our aim is to ensure families in Tameside will have the skills, information and support to build confidence, be happy and support their children to achieve their potential.
This vision complements the wider vision for the early help approach in Tameside which states:
‘‘Our vision is that every child and young person in Tameside has the best start in life, to grow, thrive, and be prepared for a successful adult life; and when the need or emerging problems occurs, communities and organisations work together with children, young people and families to co-ordinate support thereby improving the overall wellbeing and quality of life of all Tameside’s children and young people.’’
There are a number of courses being offered at present that can support all the above.
