Lunch provided and interpretation in Arabic available on all days.
This group is for any Arabic speaking parent who is a carer (paid or unpaid) for their children), and would like to come together with other parent carers for 6 weeks in a safe space and relate with each other on a psychological/ emotional level, while discussing the challenges they face as a parent carer, understand how it affects them, and learn and practice skills and self-help strategies to manage the stress better.
Please note that this course will not offer parenting tips, but will provide an opportunity for parent carers to deal with the stress and worry which inevitably comes as a result of it.
Registration is mandatory, and those interested may fill in the referral form (which can be downloaded here in English & Arabic) after observing the criteria mentioned in the same document.
