Upcoming courses

Being a parent can be a wonderful, rewarding role but it does not come without its challenges. Every parent wants to do the best for their child but many factors can have an impact on family relationships. At every age and stage, the support and advice of others who understand your situation, can be helpful. 

Westminster Early Help recognises the rewards and challenges that parents and guardians face in their ‘parenting’ roles and is committed in supporting parents to feel better equipped to manage these challenges. Early Help & Partners offer a wide range of groups across Westminster, to suit different family circumstances. 

We look forward to welcoming new participants to our groups and programmes so make sure to secure a space today.

Please use the booking link listed on the course you are interested in to book a place.
