Parenting in Slough strategy

Multi-Agency Strategy - 2020-2023

Raising a family is perhaps one of the most rewarding and enjoyable experiences but there is no doubt that parenting can sometimes become a little challenging, especially when experiencing other challenges such as unemployment, mental health etc. We could all do with a little extra help and support sometimes..

Slough Borough Council is committed to supporting our community’s parents and families with a prime focus on promoting their capabilities and self-efficacy, and help them build their confidence and capacity to do the very best in raising their children - the next generation!

Slough’s parenting offer provides both group based and one to one services for families with children 0-19 (up to 25 SEND).

Parenting Strategy Pledge

  • Strengthen availability and accessibility of general information and advice to parents
  • Build parenting capacity in specific areas where gaps have been identified
  • Ensure there is a clear focus on early help and prevention
  • Improve cohesiveness of parenting support across Slough
  • Work with partners to deliver the recommendations set out in this strategy

This document details plans for the delivery of Slough Borough Council’s Parenting Offer and provides the policy platform for developing and implementing early help through interventions for both universal and targeted
parenting provisions. By adopting a joint, integrated parenting model, with a needs-led focus to service delivery, Slough will effectively support parents on their journey with their children through from early years to young adulthood in a way that encourages engagement, co-operation, learning and involvement in positive parenting.
