The Tavistock Centre for Couple Relationships (TCCR) and Family Action are launching an innovative new “More than Mothering” programme to support couples as they resolve relationship issues that can affect their ability to parent their children effectively.
Thanks to a £2.9 million funding grant by the Department for Education, TCCR and Family Action are pioneering the launch of the programme, which was developed in America, in the UK starting in six London Boroughs including Islington, Camden, Southwark, Greenwich, Westminster and Wandsworth.
The programme will be rolled out to other areas of the country after the development phase.
This transformative programme is designed to offer change to hard-to-reach families, in some cases where there are active child protection concerns.
It focuses on using the parents’ relationship as couples and co-parents to help both parents work together to improve collaboration and positive parenting. The programme aims to enhance and strengthen services to children and families through supporting the positive involvement of fathers in their lives.
