Please see details below re Relate’s new Parenting Troubled Teenagers service, which was launched 30 July 2013.

This is a Department for Education funded project providing support to parents to help them build stronger relationships with their children and help prevent teenagers ending up in care. This may be a useful resource for those families that do not fit the Troubled Families remit.

Relate has developed a dedicated online service for parents of teenagers who are concerned about their teenagers getting into serious trouble.
The free online service aims to provide mums and dads with the tools to understand current social issues and pressures that teenagers face every day which can lead them into trouble. Our new resource provides a platform for parents to talk things through discreetly and find ways to communicate with their teenager to strengthen their relationships and prevent poor outcomes.
The service aims to provide parents with:

Information and guidance on a range of issues that teenagers experience

Live-chat with a qualified counsellor

Online forum – opportunity to talk to others experiencing similar issues

Family mapping tool
