Tayside Strategy for Parents
The Tayside Strategy for Parents is a commitment from the partner organisations in Tayside that deliver services for children, young people and families to work with parents to improve the information, services, communities and policies that support families.
The strategy was developed in consultation with parents, others with a parenting role and service providers. It aims to achieve a vision that 'Everyone who has or will have a parenting role is able to secure positive futures for themselves and their families'.
Parents identified four priorities areas which were important to them:
Parents have access to good quality information that supports them make informed choices, plan for and meet their family's needs.
Communities are inclusive, understand children's needs and support families to thrive.
Families have access to effective services that are delivered by a skilled and confident workforce that value the role of parents.
Policies that effect family life are supportive and deliver positive outcomes
The Tayside Strategy for Parents promotes equal partnership. To capture this we have proposed a Parents Offer [733Kb] which is reflected as 'We offer' (public services) and 'We ask that you' (parents) statements that identify how parents and services can support each other to make the biggest difference.
We also plan to develop a Parents Panel to bring together those with a parenting role living in the Tayside area to seek their views on a range of issues that affect their families and role as a parent.
For further information on the Parents Panel please view our promotional animation or contact the Parenting and Family Learning Team.
