Run a Real Parenting course

About us

Fegans is a 150 year old Christian charity that counsels children and supports parents. To celebrate Fegans’ year of Jubilee we have developed ‘Real Parenting’ to equip community leaders such as churches and other organisations to deliver safe, effective parent support in local groups. Motivated by a strong desire to help more families thrive, Fegans has put their decades of mental health and family support experience to good use.

What is ‘‘Real Parenting’’?

A series of workshops for parents to share their struggles and explore practical solutions, helping them to find greater happiness and harmony in their families. Over four short sessions, the community leader will share short engaging videos, facilitate lively group discussions and give simple, effective tips and guidance to help parents get the best from your children and enjoy being a parent.

When the workshops are complete parents will also be given the opportunity to stay connected with their local group and community facilitator and the wider Fegans digital family hub online, so if families do want more support, we will continue to be there for them.

Why ‘Real’?

There are too many parenting courses out there that do not acknowledge just how hard parenting really is. ‘Real Parenting’ aims to keep things real. We are not striving for perfection; we know the immense challenges that parents face and we never judge.

Fegans partners with schools, local authorities and other organisations to support some of the most vulnerable families in society. We do that with compassion, understanding and care as we believe being in a trusted, safe space is the only way we can all grow and become the best version of ourselves.

Real is also an acronym which illustrates our approach to parenting; Realistic, Empowering, Accessible and Loving.
