I Need Support
5-11 Years


The aim of CAPS is to support parents and carers to help their children to develop to their fullest potential. This includes supporting parents and carers with their children’s emotional and behavioural difficulties and to promote their school readiness.

Supporting your child

As parents and carers we play an important role in teaching children and young people how to understand and manage their feelings as they grow up. 


Many parents find their teenager's behaviour challenging.  

Teenagers' behaviour can be baffling, stressful, hurtful and often worrying. But in most cases it does not mean there is anything more serious going on than the natural process of becoming an adult.


Feel free to browse our resource directory to help you find the appropriate service to support your needs.


We all want the best for our children and families, but parenting isn’t easy. Here you can find help to navigate common family challenges, build strong relationships with your children, and support their healthy development.
