Growing Together: Support for Parents and Young Children

Growing Together is a free NHS service for Islington families. We aim to help mothers, fathers and other carers of children aged 1 to 5, who are experiencing feelings such as stress, anxiety, low mood or relationship difficulties. All of our work is designed to support parents and children emotionally. We also aim to help children develop good routines, learn to manage their emotions, and build relationships.

We welcome parents either on their own or together, or with their children, and see families in children's centres and other community spaces which are child and family friendly.

We work in lots of different ways and we tailor the support we offer to each individual family we work with. We can provide individual or couple sessions for parents. We also run groups for parents on a range of topics. We offer sessions for parents and their child together, to support the child’s behaviour and to help them get along better together.

Sign up to one of our free Stress Less or Calmer Nights Sleep workshops here.

Growing together is part of both child and adult mental health services in Islington.
