Services for Parents in Cardiff


The aim of Cardiff Parenting services is to work in partnership with families living in Cardiff to improve parenting confidence and skills, strengthen relationships, help parents feel more comfortable supporting their child's development and nurture well-being and resilience.


At Fairwater Primary School we work collaboratively with Family Links and provide a Parent Nurturing Programme. The programme is a 10-week course that will look at topics such as:

  • Understanding why children behave the way they do.
  • Recognising the feelings behind behaviours (ours and theirs)
  • Exploring different approaches to discipline.
  • Finding ways to develop co-operation and self-discipline in children.
  • The importance of looking after and nurturing ourselves.

The sessions can be delivered in a group, individually either online or face-to-face.

The sessions are 10 x 2 hours with a break for refreshments in each session.

You can join the sessions alone or with a partner or another relative that supports you in the care of your child.

The programme is delivered in an informal style with approximately 10 adults.

You will receive a Parenting Puzzle book and other materials to support your learning over the 10 weeks.

The programme is best suited to parents with toddlers, nursery and primary aged-children.

Parents/carers participating in this group can, if they wish, complete an AGORED accreditation at Level 1.
