We want to see every child in need raised in a strong family.

Kids Matter engages local churches to equip parents and carers facing disadvantages with confidence, competence and community, enabling their children to thrive.


Our Programme

Our programmes run in the heart of local communities or in prisons, connecting parents and carers in small groups, encouraging new friendships and strengthening family relationships.

Ayesha’s Story

One minute you’re pregnant, the next minute you have a baby in your arms. There’s no guide or warm-up; you just get thrown into being a parent.   Since doing the programme, I’m much calmer and better at recognising certain situations and honing in on key things that are happening with my children.

Speech Bubble Background

“I’ve realised today that although I have anger issues, I am doing much better than I was a few years ago!”

“This week I have really tried to listen properly to my kids, and so I sat down when my son wanted to talk to me and he said ‘mum, you are really listening to me!’”

“Yesterday was lovely, just refreshing and going over things again. [My little girl] has come on leaps and bounds since the last get together, I’m so proud of myself and her!” 

“I don’t shout anymore.  I used to be angry all the time, now hardly at all.  What helped? Kids Matter.  It helped to find other people to talk to. I am way calmer.”
