Register for our “Collaboration is Key” Achieving Positive Outcomes for Children and Families With Evidenced-Based Programmes From Parents Plus seminar to learn more about how our collaborative approach creates long-lasting impact and ensures that families receive the support they need to thrive and succeed and that children can reach their full potential.
|The importance of collaboration in achieving positive outcomes for children and families cannot be overstated, and this is the cornerstone of the work of Parents Plus.|
As a charity organisation dedicated to supporting parents and families through our evidence-based programmes Parents Plus recognises that working collaboratively with families, professionals, and other organisations is essential to achieve its mission of strengthening families and improving the well-being of children.
Parents Plus works in collaboration with a range of organisations, including schools, community groups, not-for-profit organisations, support services and healthcare providers. By partnering with these organisations, Parents Plus can provide a comprehensive and integrated approach to supporting families.
Collaboration is also crucial in developing effective interventions and programmes for families. Parents Plus works closely with families and professionals to identify the unique needs and challenges faced by families, and to develop programmes that are tailored to these needs. By involving families and professionals in the development and implementation of these programmes, Parents Plus can ensure that its programmes are responsive to the needs of the communities it serves.
One of the key benefits of collaboration in the work of Parents Plus is the ability to support professionals with evidenced-based interventions across a wide range of services in the community, education, health and disability sectors that address multiple needs. By supporting our partners this approach ensures that families receive comprehensive and effective support that addresses all aspects of their well-being.
