Family Caring Trust has produced a new parent’s handbook for the Primary to Pre Teen programme.  Formerly known as ‘Fives to Fifteen’ this programme has been used extensively in our Diocesan schools for a number of years.

A new DVD accompanies the handbook and features one of the many parents who have participated in a programme run by Laura Rendell, Family Support Worker for Hallam Caring Services.

Sasha Gallagher, a mother of three, has taken part in two programmes, one at St Mary’s Catholic Primary School, Herringthorpe and one in the parish.

Sasha says that the skills based programmes have helped her to break a cycle of parenting that was not working for her or her family.  “I have changed from being a good parent to being a responsible one, and what I learned has been beneficial not just for my children but for other relationships as well.”
