Support for parents who are worried about relationship conflict.

Whether you live together or are separated, the way you and your partner communicate can impact on your children. All relationships have tricky moments. It is how they are experienced and resolved that matters. If you are worried that conflict is becoming frequent or intense and that it is not getting resolved there is a range of ways to get help and advice to improve things.


The North Lincolnshire Children and Families Offer

In North Lincolnshire we want to make sure that families have access to the information, help and advice that they need when bringing up children and dealing with the issues that affect family life. This includes when parental, or other family conflict, is having an impact on parents and their children.

The help offered can range from signposting you to useful information on the internet, having a conversation with a family support worker, health visitor or other professional in a family hub to working with the whole family to help you come up with a plan and find the solutions that best meet the needs of you and your family.
