Online ‘Solihull Approach’ Parenting Courses for Anyone Caring for a Child in
Kent and Medway Parents are to be given free access to an online parenting course that can help them to understand their child’s behaviour and improve family relationships, thanks to an
investment of £16,000 by Kent Community Health NHS Foundation Trust (KCHFT) and Kent County Council (KCC).
Access has been provided to the parents and carers of nearly 450,000 children and young people in Kent and Medway to the ‘Solihull approach’ parenting course as part of their package of support for local families. There are four separate courses for parents, starting during pregnancy and continuing until a child’s 19th birthday.
Jinny Robinson-Bright, KCHFT’s Clinical Services Manager for Public Health, said
“Supporting parents, families and carers has become increasingly important during the COVID-19 pandemic. Stresses experienced by families, both expecting a baby and for those managing relationships and behaviours of their children, can be high.
That’s why we’re delighted to be able to extend the support we offer to families to include the Solihull online courses.”
“We know that being a parent can be tough, especially at the moment. These
courses give parents and carers some simple, practical strategies to both strengthen their relationships with their children and give themselves a confidence boost. The courses complement existing support available to families from health visiting and
school health teams and we urge parents to get in touch if they need further one-to-one support.”
Courses are available at www.inourplace.co.uk using the access code Invicta, to register for a free account.
