Kids Matter aims to bring about sustainable change in family life in hard-to-reach communities by equipping churches to empower parents with the skills to build strong relationships with their children.


Our Vision

Our vision is to equip the church to empower parents and caregivers facing adversity to develop confidence and parenting skills necessary for well-functioning family life. We do this through training and preparing front line church and Christian community leaders to run our relational, evidence-based Kids Matter parenting programme.

We envisage hundreds of small parenting groups meeting in local communities all over the country, learning how to strengthen their families and supporting one another in doing so.

Our Impact

Our 20 year vision is to be in the top 100 most deprived areas in England, and reaching 10% of the children in need:
