Finding a Parents Plus Course in your area
The Parents Plus Programmes are run as 6-12 week parenting courses. They are run by professionals in different services such as Family Resource Centres, Child and Adolescent Mental Health services, Primary Care teams, Child Care Commitees and Schools. The Parents Plus courses are largely run free of charge or at a minimal cost to those attending. If you are interested in attending a Parents Plus course, please make enquiries to your local services. Your Primary Care Team, Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS), GP, school or local Childcare Committee may have more specific information on what is running in your area.
