Incredible news for Families in Stoke-on-Trent

Press release from Family Focus Staffordshire:

The team at Family Focus Staffs is thrilled to announce the launch of The Incredible Years Parenting Programme in Stoke on Trent and Staffordshire.

Developed by Dr Webster-Stratton, these evidence-based programmes have been demonstrated to enhance parenting skills, promote academic, social, and emotional development in children, and effectively mitigate defiant and disruptive behaviour.

Our experience working collaboratively with families in Stoke on Trent has allowed us to tailor the programme for the needs of parents and caregivers in our area. Stoke on Trent is the thirteenth most deprived local authority in England, has rising levels of ethnic diversity, increasing numbers of child and adolescent mental health referrals, and has one of the highest number of children with additional needs and looked-after children. 33% of Stoke on Trent children are not considered “ready” when they start school. We know that delivery of The Incredible Years Parenting Programme to families in Stoke on Trent and beyond will help to address some of these issues by giving parents and caregivers the tools to nurture and guide their children to become fulfilled and successful adults.

Our Incredible Years programme offer includes:

Basic Programmes:

  • Incredible Years Baby Parenting Programme (Coming Soon)
  • Incredible Years Toddler Programme
  • Incredible Early Years Programme
  • Incredible Years School Age Programme

Specialist Programmes:

  • Incredible Years Autism Spectrum & Language Delays
  • Incredible Years School Readiness Programme
  • Extended Incredible Years Programme (For families with multiple/complex needs)

After a recent period of intensive training, our team are ready to rolling out our first parenting courses in January 2024.
