Family Hub parenting leaflet Seeds to Orchard

This parenting guide is for parents and carers of children and young people in Telford and Wrekin. It will give you practical advice and guidance to help you in the most important role of being a parent. Telford & Wrekin Council and its partners are committed to ensuring children are able to achieve their very best. This leaflet covers many aspects of parenting, plus local services and activities and contacts for further information, advice and help.
In light of our borough recently achieving the “Tree City of the World status”, and Family Hubs named after trees as a symbol of stability, growth and strength, this guide has been designed to reflect children’s growth and development through tree life stages, with parents and support services working together as partners in our Orchard, a place of diversity, nurture and support for children to reach their full potential.
Being a parent is one of the most difficult tasks there is. Most parents need help from time to time and this guidance is designed to be a useful and practical tool for parents, carers and professionals.
