Service description:
Family Links delivers innovative, high quality training courses in the Nurturing Programme to health and social care services, third sector organisations, schools and universities. The Nurturing Programme is designed to provide adults and children with the understanding, skills and ability to lead emotionally healthy lives, build resilience, empathy, self-esteem and support positive relationships.

• programmes suitable for parents of children from 9 months to over 18 to work confidently, effectively and safely with parents and families.
• a comprehensive Implementation Support service
• specialist programmes including parenting with Islamic values, work with parents in prison and with parents of children with a disability or special needs

The Nurturing Programme for SEND has been delivered successfully in numerous special schools across the UK. It is recommended that the handbook is used by Parent Group Leaders who have experience of working with children with disabilities and when all parents in the group have a child with a disability.

The adapted programme was originally piloted with parents of children attending the special schools in Ealing. The children had a wide variety of needs which included autistic spectrum disorders, physical and learning disabilities. Some of their disabilities were mild to moderate whilst others were profound. Trained Parent Group Leaders may buy a copy of the Handbook from Family Link.
