Parents who have joined previous sessions said:

“Thank you so much for these great sessions and for all the encouragement, sometimes it's so easy to blame ourselves as parents and feel like we are not doing enough for our children and feeling supported is so important.”

“I wasn’t sure what to expect, as sometimes online events can be difficult to follow and not always relevant to questions I have. This one was really punchy and interesting. I was able to impress my son with things I knew better than him and we were able to compare notes! I will recommend the new one you are doing to my friends.”

“These sessions have been so helpful. Thank you for all the information and support.”

The project has been funded by the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner, The Safer Devon Partnership, South Devon and Dartmoor Community Safety Partnership and Teignbridge Council for voluntary Service.
