Our Program Framework
Approachable Parenting is an Organisation which was established in response to the needs of the BAME Communities.
We offer a variety of services and recognised parenting courses drawing from both Psychology and Faith Principles.
The programmes guide parents in developing a healthy relationship with their parents and to develop better parent-child relationships by being more affectionate & merciful
We work with people from all backgrounds, cultures and faith communities, in a non-judgemental and supportive environment.
Our services are available for everybody who want to improve their parenting skills and learn new techniques to enable their children to grow in a loving and supportive environment.
Toolkit for Uncomfortable Conversations
Approachable Parenting understands that parenting challenges for our communities, families with multigenerational households and different cultural upbringing whilst being a strength can also bring challenges for parents. Approachable Parenting has partnered with NSPCC to develop this toolkit that will help parents navigate having uncomfortable conversations in a safe environment, backed by references from Islamic traditions.
