Whether you are parenting alone, with a partner, or have the support of family members, we understand that being a parent can be challenging and you may find it difficult to cope.

Are you finding life with your baby or toddler extremely hard and find yourself needing some extra support? Are you a new single mother trying to juggle work and childcare? Would you like to return to education?

With our support, your experience of parenting can be rewarding and satisfying.

Our Parenting Programmes

At Anew, we have a range of programmes to support you as a parent. We understand that parenting can be difficult so we are here to support you and your children in any way that we can.

Our parenting programmes include:

  • Intensive one-to-one therapeutic parenting support
  • Parenting workshops using evidence-based research
  • Bespoke parenting support for families with specific needs, such as members of the travelling community
  • Skills based training programmes and outreach parenting support
If you are interested in any of our parenting support programmes in Cork or Dublin or feel like you could do with some extra support, please contact us

Some of our past participants have said…

“I loved meeting other mothers as I felt understood and it helped me learn and share ideas”!!

“I felt that I was doing a good job but needed to see that for myself”!!

“I learned that tuning into my child was important”!!

“I learned that clear and direct communication is the key to having a respectful relationship with my teenager!”

Through our parenting programmes, we strive to:

  1. Ensure that parents and other adults who need extra supports to guarantee effective family functioning receive just that through our parenting support programmes.
  2. Encourage early participation in our services to ensure assure that women are well-equipped to support and promote the wellbeing of their children.
  3. Equip new mothers with the skills to keep their children protected from harm by practicing timely intervention.
  4. Protect the babies in our service who need protection from intentional or unintentional harm by ensuring they receive a timely and appropriate response to their needs.
  5.  Support those women who have children in care to achieve their potential in terms of health, education and wellbeing in a way that contributes to a positive life trajectory.

The outcomes of our parenting programmes are closely aligned with Better Outcomes, Brighter Futures: The National Policy Framework for Children and Young People, 2014 – 2020. Better Outcomes: Brighter Futures was the first overarching national policy framework for children and young people aged from birth to 24 years implemented by the Department of Children and Young Affairs in collaboration with all Government departments and key State agencies.

However, this policy concluded in 2020 with Children’s Minister Roderic O’Gorman confirming that a new framework for children and young people will not be developed until 2022 due to Covid-19.

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.
