Dice is a supportive, non-judgemental programme for parents and carers who are concerned about their children’s safety. It could be that their child/children are showing signs of risk taking and/or vulnerability. Vulnerability can lead to exploitation. DICE helps parents/carers learn more about exploitation, including recognising the signs, so that they can help to keep their child safer. Single parents are very welcome to bring someone along from their support network, if they would like to.

  • Introductions and thinking about the life of a teenager, including; stresses and worries, behaviours, brain development, building positive and non-judgemental family communication.
