Family Skills

Marymead's Family Skills Program aims to assist those in a parenting role to improve their parenting skills and strengthen relationships within the family.

Our groups support parents to work towards positive changes in their lives and the lives of their family members by accepting and valuing our own experiences as parents. Group work is a powerful way of working as it enables you to learn from the facilitators and others within the group, while others can benefit from your shared experiences.

Our group facilitators recognise the important role that Mums, Dads and carers have in understanding and effectively responding to the diverse needs of their children.

Our groups offer:

  • Parenting groups for women
  • Parenting groups for men
  • Parenting groups for parents

Parenting groups for women include:
