Approachable Parenting CIC is a registered company which is also a non for profit organisation that provides parenting courses and coaching to Muslim families within the UK. We invest any profits back into the Muslim community to further influence the change in society. The organisation stemmed for the fact that many Muslim families were experiencing problems with their children and didn’t know where to get the help and support they required. In our research families reported that they wanted help with their parenting which was also consistent with their religion. Approachable Parenting provide a safe environment where parents can explore problems and we teach them knowledge and skills to develop better relationships within the family. Our work has a direct influence in developing the characteristics of the family, hence having a positive impact on the family structure. Providing parenting knowledge, strategies and support will empower Muslim parents to develop the next generation to be confident, have better emotional well being and behaviour. The programme can be found on the Department of Education web site, programmes on this web site have all been independently evaluated using an evidence-based approach to show that they work. http://www.education.gov.uk/commissioning-toolkit.
