Parenting Support Services at Anew

Whether you are parenting alone, with a partner, or have the support of family members, being a parent can be challenging and you may find it difficult to cope. Maybe you are finding life with your baby or toddler extremely hard and need some support? You may be a new mother coping on your own and trying to juggle work and childcare?  You may wish to return to education.  With support, your experience of parenting can be rewarding and satisfying.

Anew offers parenting skills courses for parents in a group setting and can provide practical helps such as baby clothes and equipment.

“This is a brilliant service! In my experience Anew has provided huge support to women in crisis with an unplanned pregnancy and post pregnancy. It offers a warm, welcoming environment both to service user and health care professional. It is extremely flexible and accessible in its approach, consistently placing the service user at the centre of its work. It provides practical and emotional support to allow women to confidently enjoy their pregnancy and early motherhood. Personally, it has been a pleasure to see women and their babies benefit and thrive from their contact with Anew.”
