Free online parenting support for families

Action for Children is offering free online parenting support for families with children aged 0 – 19.

Parents can connect with a parenting coach for judgment-free advice and emotional support and can ask for help on all sorts of things, from how to keep children entertained at home, to how to handle difficult behaviour, to how to manage stress and anxiety at this challenging time.

All the content including articles are written or curated by Action for Children’s parenting coaches who are qualified and experienced support workers, childminders, play practitioners, and teachers. Advice given is based on their experiences working with children, young people and their families.

Parents can have a free and confidential live chat with a qualified parenting coach using their live chat option which is available from

  • 12:00-19:30 Monday and Thursday
  • 09:30-16:30 Tuesday and Wednesday
  • 09:30-16:00 Friday

Visit to read their advice and useful resources or talk directly to a parenting coach via the confidential 1-1 live chat.
