Solihull Approach - Free online courses for parents and carers

Free online courses for everyone in North Wales who wants to be an even better mum, dad, grandparent or carer.

Solihull online parenting courses support ALL parents-to-be, parents, grandparents or carers of any child from before they are born to the age of 18 years.

The model helps us understand how we process our emotions and enables us to build stronger relationships with one another.

Courses are designed for parents and carers of all children, including those with autism, ADHD or other additional needs.

Please enter the access code NWSOL to access the courses free of charge.
