Greenwich Parenting Practitioners Forum (GPPF)

GPPF: Pete Brown

The GPPF was originally set up by Greenwich Community College and Greenwich CAMHS towards the end of 2011 (based on an idea from Family Action, Greenwich). It was formally called the Greenwich Parenting Forum (GPF). The forum is now organised by Greenwich CAMHS with support from the Families Information Service (FIS).

The forum, held at the Memorial Hospital every term, provides an opportunity for agencies in the borough to share information and good practice about parenting support and parenting classes running in the Royal borough. The forum is open to all workers/professionals in Greenwich who support families. Shortly after each forum, a newsletter is produced with an overview of presentations given at the forum and up-to-date news about parenting support.
