Strengthening families

A 7 week programme that helps families with young people aged 10 and 11 years to prepare for their teenage years.

What's it all about?

The icon Strengthening Families Programme [398Kb] is a 7 week programme that helps families with young people in P6, P7 & S1 prepare for their teenage years. Becoming a teenager can be a challenging time for young people and parents alike.  Strengthening Families is proven to support both parents and young people through this time of change, helping them to achieve greater success when they move on to secondary school.

What happens?

As a family you attend one session each week for 7 weeks.  Each week you will learn by:

  • watching informative DVDs
  • taking part in fun activities; and
  • sharing discussions.

The programme is free to attend and a light meal is provided at each session.  

Current courses

We are currently running virtual and face to face groups, our next intake will be September 2021 and places are still available.
