APERIO, RC Slunečnice and Norwegian organization Voksne for Barn have prepared a project supporting one-parent families in Beroun and western part of Central Bohemia. The project aims to improve opportunities of children growing up in these families and promote the overall resilience of both children and parents.
Single parents will benefit from two one-day seminars (June 2015) and one long-term course (September 2015 – January 2016), while their children will spend time with trained childminders. The training for childminders will be provided by the Norwegian project partner, preparing them for specifics of working with children of one-parent families. Single parents may use individual consultations aimed to promote their parenting competences.
Project aims at professionals working with one-parent families in this region as well, offering them regular seminars with experts (May 2015 – March 2016). The aim of the seminars is to promote their knowledge of single parents and one-parent families as well as networking among the professionals.
