Flying Start 'Bringing up Children' groups are informal sessions designed to support you to encourage your child's development and build family relationships. They also give you a chance to meet other parents and make new friends.

Groups can support you through the ages and stages of your child's early years, from temper tantrums to eating and sleeping difficulties.

The Parenting and Family Support team are on hand to help all parents and main carers. This includes specific support for dads, couples with relationship difficulties and more.
