Waltham Forest Parenting Programmes

The Early Help Service arranges monthly parenting programmes across the Borough. We provide trained and experienced course facilitators who work in conjunction with host schools to give parents all the tools and confidence they need to parent their children more effectively, to manage challenging behaviour and to support their children's education.

This service is all council funded.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic all Triple P Parenting Programmes are now delivered online.

What we offer

Free courses, open to all parents on a self-referral or referral basis.

The service offers a range of evidence-based parenting programmes across the borough, either within your school or a school/venue nearby where you can refer your parents. These programmes include:

  • Triple P Primary (0-12)
  • Triple P Teens (11-18)
  • Stepping Stones
  • Strengthening Families Strengthening Communities (SFSC)

Agencies referring include schools, Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS), Children's Social Care (CSC), GPs, Children's Centres, Targeted Youth Support Services (TYSS) and the Early Help Service.

Benefits of using our service

This service enables you to draw upon the support of an experienced team of trained parenting facilitators. 

The service has invested in the training of facilitators to deliver evidence-based training. Early Help organises the programme in partnership with social care, schools and Children and Family Centres and liaises with schools and Children and Family Centres to arrange venues to host the programme.

Currently this service is free of charge and the parenting course facilitators do not charge for their time.
