Our unique PIP Plus sessions are aimed at parents of young people (aged 14 plus) and holistically join information sharing, problem solving and group support. By being in direct and regular contact with families, we understand that parents of young people are faced with different issues and seek fresh approaches. The PIP Plus sessions are informal, yet informative and supportive. You can see the upcoming programme here
