North Yorkshire Parenting Strategy 2011-2014
In North Yorkshire we recognise that good parenting makes a big difference to a child's wellbeing and future success. Many parents will need help and guidance at some point in their parenting experience. Provision should focus on supporting all parents but particularly those where the need is greatest. Seeking help should not be seen as a weakness.
The North Yorkshire Parenting Strategy for 2011-2014 [1mb] [pdf] aims to build on North Yorkshire's first Parenting Strategy (2007-10) and includes an action plan to support achievement of a key strategic priority contained in North Yorkshire's Children and Young People's Plan 2011-14, which is to develop strong families to improve outcomes for children. The intention of this strategy is to ensure all parents have access to a core offer of support with their parenting skills and that, where necessary, further targeted and specialist provision is available.
