Parent Support

There are a number of organisations to help parents, particularly when faced with difficulties or trauma.

Trauma Support  

A trauma support group meets regularly in Cheltenham. The group, which is facilitated by an NHS therapist, provides support for people who have experienced a traumatic event which continues to impact upon their life.

The trauma may be violent crime, natural disaster (including fire, flood), the traumatic death of a loved one, military combat, sexual assault, domestic violence or road traffic accident.

It’s a small, supportive group which meets fortnightly on Tuesday evenings at 6pm.

The group is run by the charity Suicide Crisis, which runs a separate Trauma Centre. Please phone 07975 974455 for details or visit their website at www.suicidecrisis.co.uk

There are a number of organisations to help parents, particularly when faced with difficulties or trauma.

Early Help 

The new Children and Families Act 2014 means changes to the law to give greater protection to vulnerable children, better support for children whose parents are separating, a new system to help children with special educational needs and disabilities, and help for parents to balance work and family life. Early help is important because it ensures vulnerable children and their families receive the help they need when they need it. It can prevent problems getting worse and requiring specialist intervention from social care, health and the youth justice system. ​

The Gloucestershire Children’s Partnership has adopted the Munro ‘Working Together’ definition of Early Help:

 Early help means providing support as soon as a problem emerges, at any point in a child’s life, from the foundation years through to the teenage years.​
