Parenting support services and Triple P Programme

Parenting support services

Parenting Support Services work in conjunction with other teams in Primary and Secondary schools across the island delivering the Triple P (Positive Parenting Programme). This is a programme that offers ideas to help deal with the big and small parenting challenges that are part of family life. Triple P does not tell you how to be a parent but offers a range of strategies for you to choose the ones that fit your family.

We aim to help parents and carers of children and teenagers up to 18 years. We also deliver a programme for parents and carers of children with special needs. Our programmes can also be delivered in Portuguese.

Triple P Positive Parenting programs help you:

  • raise happy, confident children and teenagers
  • manage behaviour in a positive way
  • set family rules and routines that everyone follows
  • get along better with your children or teenagers
  • balance work and family commitments

Our current timetable of events is detailed below and is frequently updated. You can choose to attend at a time and location that suits you, even if the session is being held at a school your child does not attend. If you would like to attend one of these events, email us or call us on +44 (0) 1534 449481
