Impact and evidence
We are committed to rigorous monitoring and evaluation of all our programmes to ensure that we’re having the maximum impact for families, schools, and workplaces.
We value and collect all forms of evidence, from national evaluations conducted in collaboration with research centres and university partners, to case studies with parents, teachers, and employees to understand the difference our work has made to their lives.
Impact and evidence at home
All of our parenting programmes have at least one national or large-scale local evaluation showing improvements in outcomes for parents and/or children. Many of these were conducted in collaboration with university partners or research centres.
We are also really proud that practitioners enjoy delivering our programmes and parents love attending our groups. Check out our News Hub for more case studies, videos and testimonies.
If you are a practitioner delivering parenting groups and would like to evaluate the changes for parents and children before and after the group, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for spreadsheets to analyse TOPSE, SDQ and WEMWBS questionnaires. If you are a parent who has attended one of our programmes, and you want to share your experiences, please get in touch at email@example.com.

Impact and evidence at school
We have over 23 years’ experience working with education settings to improve the emotional health of parents, staff and pupils.
Read more below about how our work in schools has improved outcomes for staff, parents and pupils.
Whole School Approach
We believe our work has the biggest impact when schools adopt a whole school approach to emotional health. We deliver parallel programmes for the whole school community through practical, interactive workshops and resources for staff, a social-emotional learning curriculum for pupils, and training to deliver our parenting programmes. Read more about our whole school offer to schools here.
Parent Groups in Schools
We offer training for staff (e.g. home/school link workers, safeguarding teams) to become Parent Group Leaders to run our parenting programmes at school.
We offer a range of professional development courses, including workshops for trainee teachers and an online module.
Impact and evidence at work
Emotional Health at Work is a recent addition to our programmes and we are therefore still collecting evidence of its impact.
We hope that any organisation that takes part in a training course or workshop will be interested in participating in further evaluation of the programme.

Emotional Health at Work Workshops
You can read more about the research and theoretical basis of our work in a report we published in collaboration with the Institute of Public Policy Research.
Organisations use our practical, interactive workshops to improve communication and relationships, support staff work-life balance, and promote trust and collaborative working in their teams.
