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
