Many children do not have happy family lives and fail at school.
Family Links helps change this by training thousands of health, education and community professionals to use the Nurturing Programme so that:
• parents create a calm, kind, healthy, hopeful family life
• children succeed and nurture their own children
The Nurturing Programme is a springboard for robust emotional and mental wellbeing in all adults and children; the foundations for a positive life at home, in school and society.
The Nurturing Programme
The Nurturing Programme provides simple, effective tools to help adults and children understand and manage feelings and behaviour.
The Nurturing Programme is universal; it increases the well-being of all families. It is also an effective vehicle for change in vulnerable families.
Research and Evaluation
Since being introduced to the United Kingdom in 1992, the Nurturing Programme has generated much research. A Randomised Control Trial completed last year in South Wales and is available on the Welsh Government's website. Meanwhile a report published in 2012 shows statistically significant improvements in child behaviour and parental wellbeing using validated questionnaires. Read the report.
Family Links is proud that it generates two thirds of its income from training and selling course materials, but we need your help to meet the other third to ensure that many more families benefit from the Nurturing Programme.
