Families have celebrated the completion of a course empowering them to make positive choices in parenting.

Joint course leader Amanda Dean said parenting programmes can have a really positive effect on families and the community.

“The programme is holistic in that it looks at culture and spirituality as well as emotional, physical, economic well-being and of course community,” she said.

“We looked at parenting and how this can be achieved positively, so families in our community can lead violence-free healthy lifestyles.”
