Strengthening families is a parenting programme to help vulnerable parents to care for and nurture their children.
It is based upon an intensive outreach support and educational programme, based upon the ethos and evidence from Family Nurse Partnership and child development programmes. It focuses upon helping parents understand how babies and children develop and what they can do to support and promote this. It also addresses how current lifestyles and patterns of behaviour impact on the baby, both pre and post birth.
