Strengthening Families, Strengthening Communities (SFSC) is a suite of inclusive evidence-based parenting programmes, designed to promote protective factors which are associated with good parenting and better outcomes for children.

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.

Our programme encompasses a range of courses based on the SFSC approach aimed at empowering parents and caregivers to foster parental confidence and competence and the well-being and success of their children.

I was referred by my daughter’s social worker because there were some areas I was
lacking behind in my parenting; my social worker was worried about my daughter. Since
I started on the course I’ve been gaining loads about how to promote my child’s social
and emotional development. And it’s really helped me so much. I’m very very
thankful for these people and our teachers for the support and encouragement through
these sessions. And I say a very big thank you to everyone.
