Who are Auchterarder Parents Supporting Parents? We are a newly set up parent led group which aims to help all local families support their children’s emotional and mental health wellbeing.
How does Auchterarder Parents Supporting Parents plan to do this? Information Sessions and Workshops
Information sessions will be aimed at the whole community. Sessions will deliver tips, guidance and techniques to offer practical benefits and solutions for families. We would like to focus on practical family workshops run by experienced practitioners.
Either through a safe space for parents to come and talk to other parents about issues they are concerned about, or on a one-to-one basis to help sign post the most appropriate direction and to other existing organisations.
Family Activities and Events
To bring together families across the community, to encourage connections and development of support networks, e.g., family sports sessions, ceilidhs, activity afternoons, etc
Above all we want to work in partnership with other established groups, organisations and businesses in our community. Having a model of an independent parent led group, the school and our community working together to help parents, and extended family members, support their children seems like the right way to go.
If there is anyone who wants to get involved or has any suggestions or ideas please get in touch.
