Learn to deliver the Strengthening Families, Strengthening Communities (SFSC) parenting programme by attending our five day facilitator training. 

About Strengthening Families, Strengthening Communities (SFSC)
Strengthening Families, Strengthening Communities (SFSC) is an inclusive evidence-based parenting programme, designed to promote protective factors associated with good parenting and better outcomes for children aged up to 18 years.  The programme emphasises the cultural and experiential elements of parenting and encourages parents think about how their actions and experiences may influence their parenting style. SFSC provides practical exercises, homework activities and discussion opportunities which help parents to:

  • gain a better understanding of child development 
  • use positive discipline techniques 
  • promote children’s social skills and self-discipline 
  • achieve positive change in family relationships 
  • explore and develop strategies to deal with factors that risk poor outcomes for children, such as harsh and/or inconsistent discipline.

SFSC has enjoyed success with parents from a number of backgrounds, including black and minority ethnic parents, teenaged parents, parents with learning disabilities and parents from marginalised communities, including those with experience of drugs, alcohol or violence. 

SFSC has also been successfully implemented in both urban and rural areas and in settings including schoolshousing associations and prisons, as well as churches and mosques, drug and alcohol recovery projects and youth projects. The programme has also been delivered in combination with other curricula or as part of broader programmes of social change, including 

The programme has been extensively evaluated and has received the CANparent Quality Mark.
