Parents under Pressure
We have recently secured funding for us to deliver the Parents under Pressure (PuP) programme for across Northamptonshire.
We have employed 2 new workers to work on this exciting project.
The focus of the PuP programme is to support the development of a safe and nurturing relationship between a primary carer(s) and infant/s or young child/ren.
It is an early intervention programme tailored to each family's need according to the initial assessment and exploration of their particular circumstances and can be helpful for parents who are non-resident with their child(ren) as well as for parents in a primary caring role. and we then set out on a 'PuP' journey together.
We will help our clients build on their confidence in themselves as a parent, using our resources, modules, and mindful techniques to promote growth and confidence and help achieve their goals.
We will support families to become a stronger, more stable, and nurturing unit in which both parents and children thrive.
We currently accept referrals for 1-1 work from the drug and treatment service in Northamptonshire (CGL/S2S). We also run a PuP group at "The Bridge", for it's members. This is to ensure that the person is receiving parallel support from treatment services. If you are interested in either the 1-1 or group work please speak to your worker at either CGL/S2S or The Bridge who will make the referral to PuP for you.
Referral criteria :-
- Primary carers of children aged 2 to 8 years
- In regular contact with the child/children (Regular contact is defined as at least once a month)
- Currently in treatment for drugs or alcohol misuse with S2S/CGL
- Able to understand spoken English
