Glasgow City Children’s Services Planning Executive group established a multidisciplinary Parenting Support Subgroup in 2006. The group included representatives from education, health, social work and voluntary groups. It has developed this Parenting Support Framework on the basis of a review of evidence on what works in parenting support, from consultation with a wide range of key stakeholders including voluntary and parent groups and also the framework has been helpfully informed and influenced by a discussion paper ‘A model for parenting support services for Glasgow’ prepared by some members of the parenting support sub group who all work with children and families in NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde.
The aim of the Framework is to improve outcomes for children through co-ordinated support for parents. It will support children and family services (including education, health social work, culture and leisure) to plan, implement and monitor their local parenting support services. It is consistent with and complementary to Glasgow City Council’s Early Childhood and Extended Services Strategy, which aims to ensure that all children have the best possible start in life.
