Parenting Support Services
All of our facilitators are trained in a parenting programme called Triple P (Positive Parenting Programme). This is a programme that makes raising children and teenagers easier. It gives you ideas to help deal with the big and small problems of family life.
We aim to help mums, dads and carers of children up to 12 years and teenagers from 12 to 16, and a specialist programme for parents and carers of children with special needs.
Triple P Positive Parenting helps 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 without stress
Triple P does not tell you how to be a parent. It gives you a range of simple strategies and you chose the ones that fit your family.
Parenting Support are working in conjunction with the Family Support Workers and Primary and Secondary schools across the island to deliver this programme. If you would like further information on a course near you contact your school or email us.
Drop in facility

The Parenting Strategy document
The Parenting Strategy document is a direct outcome of the Review of Parenting Services in Jersey which took place in 2007.
This strategy has been formulated by a multi-agency partnership steering group, involving both statutory and voluntary agencies and is a result of wide consultation, including parents.
