Unity has announced another major success in partnership with the Army Welfare Service. Almost £150,000 has been secured through the Ministry of Defence Armed Forces Covenant Grant to provide a positive parenting programme for military families called Strong Parents, Strong Children.
The international programme which has been tried and tested throughout Europe has been successfully used for over 10 years and will be adapted providing consistency for families posted abroad. The programme will initially provide structured parenting courses a year over three years reaching families across Tidworth, Andover, Middle Wallop and Winchester garrisons.
Terry Bishop, Chief Executive of Unity said ‘We are absolutely delighted to have secured this funding as this will enable the partnership to develop a training programme which is totally unique in the UK and has the scope to be rolled out further helping families throughout the military’. This is another opportunity for Unity and the AWS supported by unit welfare teams on the bases, to provide trail-blazing services to the benefit of military communities.
