Early Intervention- Parents Under Pressure Program

The Early Intervention-Parents under Pressure program aims to focus on families with identified vulnerabilities and intervening by building their resilience and parenting strategies to manage the stressors of parenting.

It also focuses on building their resilience to become attuned and connected positive parents.

This program looks at achieving this through early identification by working in partnership with early years settings to identify families that would benefit from an intervention and deploying the Parents Under Pressure Program.

EI PUP could provide therapeutic support for eligible parents in-home or in groups.

These fun, free weekly playgroups are for families that may have particular vulnerabilities or needs, or require extra support to assist in strengthening the child-parent relationship. Our Playgroup leaders are available to assist and help in a variety of ways. Families can seek advice, learn about local support services, and expand their social network in a supported community playgroup setting. Play is a child’s natural language. Attendance at a playgroup can help children’s social, emotional, physical and language development by providing an opportunity to learn and practice new skills.

The friendly, welcoming playgroup sessions include:

 • Child led free play activities inside & outside Structured Art & Crafts
• Speciality sessions; music, singing songs and a story time session Informal education about child development
• Therapeutic support to improve parent’s skills and independence
• Connecting with your child through fun activities to strengthen attachment
