We encourage exisiting PAFT programmes to hold local network days enabling practitioners to share best practice and offer peer support. Network days can count towards Continuing Professional Development (CPD) hours. Wherever possible and practical, two members of the PAFT UK office will attend local network days to co-facilitate and support.

 

FEEDBACK ON LOCAL NETWORK DAYS

NHS Dumfries and Galloway Health Visiting Nursery Nurses participated in a learning session with PAFT UK to enhance their knowledge and skills in their role to provide parenting support across Dumfries and Galloway. To take advantage of a shared learning experience, colleagues from Aberlour Childcare Trust joined in the afternoon session. Attendees found it uplifting and encouraging; enthused to share challenges and new ideas.

FEEDBACK ON NATIONAL NETWORK DAYS

Thanks to everyone for such passionate and powerful presentations. The National Network day always helps to re-energise my battery
These Network days are always full of really exciting and informative speakers. It is the one conference I ensure I attend annually. Each year, it just gets better.
It has inspired me and given me a much needed boost!
Reinforcing that PAFT is empowering parents and the many agencies whom are working to make children’s lives better, to grow into confident adults.

The PAFT UK office offers support to PAFT practitioners and supervisors via email and telephone, and face to face where feasible. In addition to this support, practitioners and supervisors have access to e-mail support from the International Centre of Parents As Teachers (PAT) in St.Louis, MO, USA.
