Description of activity

Kids Come First is a specialist support forum created for separated parents to encourage the sharing of information & experiences within group sessions. We deliver a unique adult teaching workshop of child-focused material with specialised guidance & advice to help parents cope better and move towards more positive separated co-parenting.

What’s it all about?

Kids Come First is a support forum for separated parents which was set up to encourage the sharing of information & experiences within caring, confidential group sessions. In the group we present a unique adult programme of customised child-focused teaching materials, designed to offer helpful guidance & advice for more effective, separated co-parenting. Two qualified adult teacher trainers with extensive experience in child counselling and family mediation run each course. Together they provide an arena where separated parents receive structured, tailor-made support during this difficult time.

How will it help me?

Becoming a separated parent can be a dramatic change and a process that takes time to adjust & adapt to. Parents sometimes find themselves struggling to maintain an effective co-parenting relationship with their ex-partner and this may have a negative impact on their children. By providing the right support & advice, at the time you need it most, we help you cope, so your children can too!

What if I am already going through court proceedings?

Our aim is to help parents keep family matters out of the courts wherever possible. Although everyone’s situation is unique, the learning material we offer will be equally relevant and valuable in understanding the needs of children.
