Advice and Help for you and your child

Positive parenting-Sheffield City Council


Parents and carers can access a range of groups that offer practical advice and support with parenting. We deliver programmes that are evidence based, tried and tested.


The content is written by professional psychologists who have conducted years of research into what works to manage behaviours and difficulties that we can all face as parents. 


Everyone has busy lives and we are all different, so there are different types of groups you can access depending on your needs and at times to suit you.


Please find below the updated Sheffield Parent Hub, What’s On Guide;


The guide is also available as a download on their webpage.

We know that Isolation, working at home, and homeschooling, are all additional pressures on parents at the moment and we know being a parent can have its own challenges, even when we aren’t in lockdown and socially isolating ourselves from family and friends. It is with this in mind that we are sharing with you the Sheffield’s Parenting team online materials and useful videos to support you during these times. These are all based on the evidence based parenting programmes that we use in Sheffield.
