Free online courses on children's emotional health and wellbeing
Parents are invited to register for the free evidence-based and NHS approved parenting courses available from the Solihull Approach, covering the antenatal period through to the teenage years. When registering, you will need to provide your postcode, as it is free for Berkshire residents, and the access code is PARENTING. This will give you free access to all the courses (normally available at cost) and it is a lifetime membership.
