Improve outcomes for children across our community by improving the quality of the inter-parental relationships. This is increasingly recognised as a primary influence on effective parenting practices and children’s long-term mental health and future life chances.
Since 2015 we have worked in partnership with the charity Resilience Matters to raise the resilience of more than 450 parents. They have gained simple and transferable skills to help themselves and their families navigate change and uncertainty, reduce stress and confidently improve relationships and self-esteem.
We have done this for little or no cost.
Putting our purpose at the front of our work
Improving parenting skills, personal growth & wellbeing
SKILLS FOR LIFE
“ The quality of the inter-parental relationship, specifically how parents communicate and relate to each other, is increasingly recognised as a primary influence on effective parenting practices and children’s long-term mental health and future life chances. Supporting and enabling parents and children in their relationships; their ability to cope, adapt and achieve despite the challenges they may face is essential to our community’s health and sense of well-being. Programmes which strengthen families are an important tool to improve outcomes for children across our community.”

PROUD OF OUR IMPACT
It’s important to us to ensure as many people as possible access our resilience programmes. This initiative carved the way to delivering a shortened digital programme directly in schools and it’s something we constantly build on.
