Becoming a parent, either for the first time or again, can be overwhelming and a big adjustment in normal times – let alone in the middle of a pandemic!
There’s lots of support available for new parents, it is just a bit harder to access it at the moment. We have outlined below the support you are still entitled to, and some of ways you can find extra support.
There are lots of things you can do to support yourself during this sometime difficult time. Talk to your support network about the things you want to do for yourself so that they can help you with it.
We take your safety and privacy seriously
You don’t have to share your details with us – there are lots of reasons why you might want to remain anonymous, which we will respect. All calls are confidential, and we will always seek your agreement before we share any of your details with other organisations. The only time we will share information without your consent is if we think there is a life-threatening situation, or if you or someone else might be at risk of significant harm. On these occasions we may need to contact the Police, Ambulance Service or Children’s Social Care.
We also share anonymised data with the commissioners of this service. By using Parent Talk, you understand and give your explicit consent to this.
Your email address will not be used for any reason beyond giving you parenting information, support and advice.
