Parent Support

A service to help parents become more effective in managing their child's behaviour.
Last updated:

The Parent Support service works with hard to reach parents of school aged children up to 18 years who are involved in:

  • antisocial behaviour
  • criminal activity
  • truancy (only if in combination with one or both of the above behaviours).

What will Parent Support do?

A Parent Support Worker will work with parents in the home for up to six months to help them regain control of their child’s behaviour.

This may include:

  • working with parents to improve their relationship with their child
  • supporting parents to increase their parenting skills and confidence
  • providing ideas of new ways for parents to communicate with their child
  • helping parents to learn new discipline techniques
  • working with the child (if appropriate) to ensure that they behave appropriately and attend school regularly.
