  • Group programme 
    Everyone wants the best for their children, but it can be hard to know what to do as a parent in the early years. The group programme provides everything you need to help get your little one off to a great start and covers: parenting confidence, physical activity, what children and families eat, family lifestyle habits and enjoying life as a family.

  • 1-to-1 programme
    Some parents find it more difficult to attend a group - maybe due to language needs, disability or lacking confidence. We can cover all the key themes from the group programme through a 1-to-1 approach, where we can explore the topics at your own pace. This can be done either in your home or in a community venue. Please contact us if you would like to receive 1-to-1 support from a member of our team, on 07709640454 or henrybsb@henry.org.uk
