Prime Time Parents Project set to launch

PARENTS across Liverpool are invited to sign up to a new series of advice and development workshops.

Liverpool City Council’s parenting team launches its Prime Time Parents Project next month which sees a programme of 22 free, evening workshops that are set to empower parents and carers in their roles.

The programme starts on Tuesday 3 May, with two sessions available each week until 19 July. To ensure accessibility, all sessions will be held online via Zoom.

Sessions will be led by external partners: Liverpool Child Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS), BullyBusters, the ADHD Foundation, Citizens Advice, Young Person’s Advisory Service (YPAS), ADDvanced Solutions, RASA Merseyside, the Brain Charity and the Vauxhall Law Centre.

Workshops include:

  • Practical strategies for supporting your autistic child/young person
  • Seeing the world through your child’s eyes
  • Talking eating disorders
  • Managing your money
  • Drug and alcohol awareness.

Cllr Frazer Lake, Cabinet Member for Adult and Children’s Social Care, said: “We’re really excited to be offering parents and carers this extensive programme of workshops and grateful that so many of our partners are supporting the Prime Time Parents Project.

“Caring for children and young people is rewarding, but it’s also hard work. Sometimes, everyone needs advice, new ideas or just confirmation that they’re doing a great job.

“Our parenting team has developed this programme is response to feedback from parents and carers so we’re sure that anyone with caring responsibilities for children or young people will find a session that will offer them a fresh perspective on some really important challenges.”

For a full list of workshops please see the online brochure . Workshops are free but must be booked in advance through Eventbrite.
