Parenting Support Service

The Parenting Support Service offers a range of group based or online parenting courses for families living in Lambeth. 

Being a Parent 2 – 11

Being a Parent is a 9-week group programme offered to parents/​carers of children aged from 2 to 11 years old.

The course is led by trained Empowering Parents, Empowering Communities (EPEC) parent group leaders and aims to help children and families get the very best start in life by supporting you to manage your and your child's feelings, communicate and interact positively with your child, use positive behaviour management strategies, and manage parental stress. 

The first session is an introduction to the programme. It will enable you to have a better understanding of what to expect and to meet the parent group leaders and other parents/carers attending so you can get the most out of the group.

It's important to attend the introduction session to secure your place in the group and a place in the creche for your child if you need it. Creche places are limited and allocated to those who sign up first.
