Global Day of Parents and support in Lambeth

Designated by the General Assembly in 2012, Global Day of Parents, this Tuesday 1 June, provides an opportunity to appreciate all parents for their “selfless commitment to children and their lifelong sacrifice towards nurturing this relationship.”

Free training and support for Lambeth parents 

Here in Lambeth we’re proud to offer parents free, inclusive, evidence based programmes which support families, improve relationships and strengthen communities.

The Parenting Support Service provides courses for parents from pregnancy right up to the teenage years. All the programmes are free to attend and many also include a creche for children under five.

Parenting programmes can help you to:

  • Feel more confident as a parent
  • Understand your child and their behaviour
  • Establish routines and boundaries
  • Support your relationship with your child
  • Improve your co-parenting relationship

Testimonial from a Lambeth Parent

“The programme not only taught me how to become a better parent, it taught me how to become a better person. It focused on the unique relationship between child and parent, genuine listening, and heartfelt human connection. It came in a time in my life when I needed all the support I could get to be the best parent I could, and provided me with tools I will be able to use forever. Thanks to this programme I have gained confidence as a parent and can be there for my child in the way she needs it.”
