Being a parent or carer isn't always easy. Finding reliable resources to support you with parenting can be hard. We hope you will find something to help you and your child on their journey from birth to adulthood. Here you will find links to the main areas of the website as well as information on accessing services.
Here you will find information and advice about the skills that children and young people want and need to learn to become independent adults.
Learning to look after yourself is the first step to developing independence. Self care includes washing, dressing, going to the toilet and eating and drinking.
A child's day is full of play. Play helps children learn and practice new skills, make friends and find a sense of self. Play changes as children develop into adults and includes hobbies and leisure activities.
Services for children and young people in NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde are provided by Health Care Professionals in a number of areas.
