Building Relationships for Stronger Families – supporting families to tackle parental conflict

There is strong evidence that conflict between parents – whether together or separated – can have a significant negative impact on children’s mental health and social and emotional development.

 

Croydon are part of an exciting new pilot project funded by the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) aimed at families whose lives are affected by conflict.

 

What is the ‘Building Relationships for Stronger Families’ programme?

The ‘Building Relationships for Stronger Families’ programme offers parents support to address conflict within their relationship, improve communication as well as strengthening their parenting skills.

Sessions are delivered either one to one or in a group setting, and focus on aspects such as communication, managing stress and disagreements and exploring patterns of behaviour.

 

Who can access support?

The programme is open families with a child aged 0-18. Parents can access support regardless of whether they are in a relationship of separated, provided at least one parent resides in Croydon.

 

How to access support?

Families need to complete a participant agreement and pre-course questionnaire to identify the right level of support for them – Parenting Resources

Families can be directly referred to the project’s central hub via rpcreferrals@westminster.gov.uk. If you have any further queries, please contact Anna Elliot on 020 7641 3523.
