Parents Under Pressure™ - Referrals At a glance
Parents Under Pressure™ is for primary carer parents (the main person who looks after a child) who:
- are attending a treatment programme for drugs or alcohol misuse
with children who:
- are under five years of age.
They must also be able to understand spoken English.
We’re testing Parents Under Pressure™ to see what a difference it makes for families. In some areas, we’re working with Warwick University to measure its impact by using a randomised controlled trial (or RCT).
How to get help from NSPCC services
Sometimes you may be referred to one of our services by someone who already helps you, like a midwife, social worker, teacher or children's centre worker. You can join some of our services yourself, simply by contacting us to see if a place is available.
If you think a service that is available in your area might help you and your family, get in touch to find out more.
