Empowering Parents Empowering Communities

Empowering Parents Empowering Communities (EPEC) delivers a carefully structured program engaging parents to talk to other parents as a first choice when seeking information thus hearing it from ‘someone like me’.

Parents are invited to attend the Being a Parent Program weekly for 8 weeks covering topics such as feelings, play, understanding children’s behaviour, discipline strategies, listening and coping with stress.

Parent graduates are then invited to apply to become parent facilitators and run parenting groups (in pairs) through early years and parenting focused services. Parent facilitators are trained, employed, supported and supervised by CLAN staff in the local community.
