There are two groups; Time for Me, and Moving On. Time for Me allows parents a chance to relax and explore their own interests. The group allows you to meet other parents and benefit from peer support.

The Moving On group is about helping parents to plan for change, build their self-esteem and confidence and learn a bit about stress management to enable them to look at their futures and move forward in their lives.

Both groups are run during school terms so that parents with school children can attend. A crèche is also provided.
