Parents of Teenagers 13 - 19

Young Greenwich Parents offers FREE advice and support servicesfor parents of children aged 10- 19, (or up to 25 if your childhas SEND), who live in the Royal Borough of Greenwich.

Our services empower and equip parents with the tools to effectively navigate the changing relationships with their teens and improve their well being in the process.

We provide a non-judgemental space for parents to connect, share and grow together. Our approach is unique because it’s less focused on your ‘parenting style’, and more on YOU as an individual; what you need, what drives you and what can support you to be a happier person and parent.
