The Parenting Support Trial project was a project through which mums, dads and carers of children aged five and under were offered vouchers to access parenting support and classes.
Over 600 parents, including fathers, accessed the support. A small group of parents kept in touch and now meet every Wednesday as a support group in a local library.
