One Family are delighted to partner with Ozanam House, Community Centre (SVP) to offer in-person group-based parenting courses in Autumn 2022. All courses are free and open to all parents.

They will run over 6 weeks and parents will be invited to attend two online guest sessions during the term (more information will follow).

All in person courses in Ozanam House are currently free.

There will be a maximum of 16 parents in your course. The course will last for 2 hours each week over a 6-week period and you will get a certificate of attendance.

Your facilitator is experienced in offering parenting courses and will work on the issues the group would like to most see addressed over the 6-week period.

Each week there will be a short break for tea/coffee and you will have an opportunity to get to know the other parents on your course.

You will also learn about the other services Ozanam House and One Family have to offer. Further supports can be provided if those are something you’re interested in.

This course will offer you peer support and time to get out and meet others as you share the challenges of parenting.

You do not need to have an exceptional level of written English, as the course will be more practical. There will be some handouts each week to take home.

You will also be invited to join 2 additional stand-alone workshops (via Zoom) with guest speakers. This will take place over October-November and will cover topics which are relevant to the current parents in the course.

You can book your place by following the instructions for fetchcourses.ie , with One Family or you can phone Ozanam House on 01 8742804.
