For Parents and Families
Services for parents and familes include:
Camden Futures is a service offering support and advice to families with significant needs, where the eldest child is aged 5 -10 years old and requires additional support. The service can offer support to local families with a range of problems, including family relationships, children’s emotional problems, parenting, educational issues, debts and welfare advice.
Parenting workshops in conjunction with CAN Parenting vouchers available to parents in Camden by health visitors, midwives, doctors’ surgeries and Children’s Centres. You can also pick up a voucher from selected Boots stores.
Forest Schools: a recognised programme that involves a qualified practitioner working with groups of children in a natural outdoor setting such as a woodland. Elfrida Rathbone Camden is keen to work with new schools and groups who would be interested in receiving this programme.
Advocacy services currently available are SEN Advocacy for Recently Arrived Families and the Young Carers Project being offered in partnership with Islington and Camden Family Action.
