About us

Aimed at professionals and parents across Europe, Stronger Families is a pioneering Europe-wide initiative to help parents improve their skills and/or progress to employment. It provides and delivers work and vocational skills through innovative, creative and entrepreneurial blended adult learning programmes.

The project is a partnership and consortium between five long-established single parent & employer support organisations: APERIO (Czech Republic), Intermedia (Italy), One Family (Republic of Ireland), One Parent Families Scotland and berufundfamilie (Germany). You can read more about us here.

Across Europe, more and more one-parent families are living in poverty. Stronger Families aims to help parents improve their skills and/or progress to, or stay in, employment. We also work closely with professionals and employers to help achieve these goals.

We have developed two programmes for single parents- New Horizons Personal Development Programme for Parents and New Horizons at Work: Lone Parent Employees. Click on your country to read more about these programmes.
