Parent Lifeline is a registered Charity based in Sheffield since January 1978. We support Parents/Carers by offering:
We offer emotional support and understanding to parents under stress of any kind, whatever the ages of their children. Parent Lifeline is not just a helpline for times of crisis, but for any time that a mother or father feels the need for someone to turn to and talk things over with a sympathetic listener.
We believe that asking for help is a sign of responsibility, not a mark of failure. We can often suggest further avenues of help if the caller wishes. Callers may wish to remain anonymous.
Caller on the helpline felt it helpful to talk to a fellow parent, who has the time to listen.
I felt like a weight had been lifted after being able to have a one-to-one meeting in your office.
It was nice to be able to attend the support group, to take time out for myself and speak to other parents.
The course for parents helped me evaluate and readjust the relationship with my children especially, but, has also had an impact (positive!) on all areas of family life.
This is our information as of November 2012 and we cannot be held responsible for any changes.
