Biographical Info

Separated Parents Information Programmes (SPIPs)

We help parents handle the challenges of parenting after separation.  We are the designated provider of the CAFCASS Separated Parents Information Programme for Bristol. Our courses are ran to cover the following areas: Bristol, Bath, Weston-Super-Mare, North Somerset, Gloucester and Cheltenham.

As well as helping parents handle the challenges of life after separation, the programme seeks to enable parents to consider situations from their child’s perspective, and provides advice and support on how to help children who are in this situation.

Most parents attending SPIPs have been referred by the court and are funded by CAFCASS. We are also able to offer programmes to parents who are not in court proceedings (who pay privately to attend). Please contact us for further information.
