Baby and Us

Baby and Us is one of the two courses (along with Being a Parent) which together comprise the Empowering Parents, Empowering Communities (EPEC) programme. EPEC aims to ensure children have positive social and emotional wellbeing, a nurturing and loving family environment and an enriched early years’ experience, leading to positive, supportive, safe secure relationships.

Originally commissioned from the South London and Maudsley NHS Trust (SLAM), Baby and Us is an evidence-based, peer-led, primary prevention parenting programme for parents of infants 0-8months. The nine week programme aims to enable parents to acquire new knowledge, personal skills and social support to improve adaptation to early parenthood.

The Baby and Us programme runs in the four children’s centres in ABSS areas (Cambridge Road, Centre Place, Friars and Summercourt).
