Kids Come First: separated parent support forum.
“Kids Come First” is a new support forum specially created for separated parents to encourage the sharing of information & experiences within group sessions. At the forum we present a unique adult learning ‘programme’ of child-focused material, which aims to offer helpful, specialised guidance & advice for separated parenting.
Sessions take place on Wednesdays/Thursdays evenings between 6-8pm or on Saturdays 10am-12.
We schedule the 4-hour course over 2 sessions to run in consecutive weeks for the purpose of continuity of the material.
‘Kids Come First’ was co-founded by 2 qualified, adult teacher trainers with extensive experience of child counselling & family mediation who are responsible for compiling & presenting the ‘course’ material. They identified the ever-increasing need and importance of being able to provide an appropriate arena where separated parents could receive structured, ‘tailor-made’ support during this difficult time.
Our aim is to increase awareness & understanding of the difficulties children experience as a result of family breakdown. We want to help parents keep family matters out of the courts wherever possible but also recognise everyone’s situation is unique. Even if you are currently going through the courts, the learning material we offer will be equally relevant and valuable in understanding the needs of children.
