And some networks and resources:

· Can I take this opportunity to remind you about The Well, which is the Methodist network for children, youth, schools and family workers, including regular email updates (approx 3 per month). To sign up, please go to: http://www.methodist.org.uk/mission/children-and-youth

· And encourage you, if you run parenting courses to sign up to the National Parenting Initiative (NPI). The vision of the NPI is that any parent in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland or Wales will be able to enter their postcode and find a parenting course near them. It is free and provides not only a database of parenting courses, but also resources.

Please feel free to pass this information onto anyone you think might be interested.
