A helping hand when you need it most

As a parent, you don't need anybody to tell you just how demanding a role that can be. No matter how well-behaved your child may be, there will be times when you need a bit of help - that's where this website comes in.

This section is aimed specifically at parents, and focuses on three key areas of concern: Smoking, Drinking and Violent Crime, as well as the part drugs can play in wrecking family lives.

It's not designed to try to resolve every issue, but it does offer useful information, guidance, the re-assurance you are not alone - and links to more specialised help. It's here to assist you, so why not give it a try?
