Service Description

We are a proud alliance partner of Mindworks.  At Barnardo’s Surrey Positive Parenting, we support parents/carers of children (6 to 18 years old) who have a diagnosis of ADHD or are in the process of getting a diagnosis of ADHD. We give parents and carers strategies to manage challenging behaviour whilst gaining support from parents or carers in a similar situation. 

We have groups all over Surrey that run during the day and evening, online and face-to-face. This support and advice is delivered in an eight-week programme. 

We empower parents by helping them to:

  • gain confidence and skills as parents when living with a child with ADHD
  • exploring how positive parenting is beneficial to the family as a whole
  • discuss strategies for effective behaviour management
  • have the opportunity to meet with other parents
  • understanding the importance of clear communication for a child with ADHD   

We have two skills building programmes:

  • The Parent Factor in ADHD is for parents/carers of children that have an ADHD diagnosis (8 week skills building programme). 
  • The Nurturing Programme, delivered with ADHD as a clear focus, is for those parents/carers awaiting a diagnosis for their child. (8 week skills building programme).
