Update 19.3.2020, message for parents:
Due to the escalation of Coronavirus (COVID-19), as of Tuesday 17th March 2020, The Parent House will close until after the Easter break (20th April). This is to safeguard our Parents, Staff, Volunteers and Partners.
Our priority is the health and wellbeing of both our staff and everybody who we work with on a daily basis, and continuing conversations with Parents is important to us.
Our staff are set up to work remotely and are fully responsive via phone and email as usual during the rest of this term.
We offer a warm welcome and a programme of support and training for local parents and carers that suits individual needs.
This service is for Islington parents only, if you live, work or have a child in an Islington School. You must be a Parent/Carer/Grandparent
Our accredited courses have confidence building and communication skills embedded in them. Courses range from Level 1 vocational courses to Entry Level ESOL classes. We have an on-site Ofsted registered creche which supports some of our courses.
Through our 'Volunteering Works' project we support parents and carers into volunteering opportunities to suit their strengths, as well as develop skills that will increase their chances of getting into work. More imfprmation on volunteering for the Parent House Outreach Project
