Parent & Child Support Group
Last week the Bristol Parent & Child Support Group met up for one of their regular meetings.
The group invited Izzy from Independent Domestic Violence Advice to talk to the group in order to share about The Freedom Programme, her role as an IDVA and the services available. Izzy was able to provide detail about the nature of domestic violence, what the programme involves and how parents care can access the programme and support available.
Izzy was able to help the group to identify relationships that are abusive and think about how to talk about these relationships with parents. Importantly, Izzy was able to identify what makes up positive relationships so that carers can promote healthy relationships between the parents in their care.
Then next support group will be a general catch up and the one after we will have someone come and talk to us about supporting parents with learning difficulties as this has been identified as an issue we could benefit from focusing on.
