Help for Parents

New Digital Resource from Fegans: Parenting in a Pandemic.

Fegans has taken steps to ensure it continues to support children and families during the pandemic. We are therefore moving our therapeutic and parenting expertise online via a range of digital channels.

Until further notice Fegans has ceased centre and schools-based counselling for all but the most vulnerable children where it would be deemed unsafe for therapy to end abruptly. In its place, remote counselling will be available for teenagers from 20th April using video conferencing. Video conferencing will also be used to deliver Fegans’ parent support sessions. 

Meanwhile, Fegans' parent support workers will also be answering questions and offering advice on the Dad.Info Forum which is owned and run by Fegans. The forum, which is free to join, is used by almost 40,000 parents and carers across the UK.

Our new, free digital Family Hub will also serve as a hive of parenting and mental health advice and parents can sign up to the free ‘Parenting in a Pandemic’ newsletter to receive regular email updates. 

Fegans’ therapists, parent support workers and early help practitioners will be publishing articles and tips on issues such as depression in isolation, child-led play opportunities, and the importance of routine.
