THE PARENT CENTRE
The Parent Centre is a South African NGO which builds strong families through positive parenting and creating a society of well-balanced children.
The Parent Centre strives to contribute to a society in which every parent or caregiver is able to raise resilient and well-balanced children. When parents are equipped with effective, healthy parenting skills, children will be able to reach their full potential and be protected from victimisation and abuse in communities free from violence.
Counselling: General counselling is aimed at engaging the parent into a partnership where information is shared and the parent’s own problem-solving ability is facilitated
Parent Infant: The Parent Centre’s Parent Infant Programme consists of Parent Infant Home Visiting and 0 - 5 Counselling.
Teen Parenting: The Parent Centre’s Parenting Skills and Support Programme is aimed at teenage parents and caregivers.
PACES: The PACES (Parent and Community Empowerment and Support) Programme contributes towards widening the safety net for children.
HOW DO THEY DO IT?
They do this by offering training, counselling and support for all parents and families – whether you are a single parent, going through a teenage pregnancy, struggling with the dynamics of a blended family, or just need general parenting advice and support.
So far, The Parent Centre has impacted 231,727 parents and caregivers, who care for approximately 624,750 children, and 19,414 professionals and community workers working with families.
