Who Are Open

There is no such thing as a perfect parent and we all need a little help and support at times. Every child is different and at every stage we are faced with new challenges and situations to handle.

How We Can Help

We provide information, advice and support for parents and carers who want to support their child’s development and wellbeing, who may be experiencing some difficulty with managing their child’s behaviour or who simply want some tips and strategies for dealing with common childhood and teen issues. We want everyone in a parenting role in East Sussex to feel supported and ensure that East Sussex is a great place to grow up.

What We Offer

Open for parents offers a variety of support through the Triple P programme: talks, one-off groups, longer courses, brief one-to-one support and online courses.

Our Aim

We aim to provide practical positive ways to manage some of the challenges you may encounter. We signpost parents to other appropriate services and work in partnership with other agencies to support families.
Due to recent government guidelines we have had to cancel all our Parenting groups and drop-in’s until further notice, but we are offering support online – please see the ‘Support in your area’ page for more details.
Parenting during the Coronavirus crisis can be harder, many of you are dealing with the realities or working from home, trying to meet your family’s needs and home schooling too, so we have updated this website with a list of helpful links for parents during this challenging time.

Supported by Triple P

Open for parents is funded by East Sussex County Council and the NHS Hastings and Rother Clinical Commissioning Group. Triple P delivery is supported by Triple P UK.

We’re continually updating this website in light of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic with a list of helpful links for parents.
