‘’[Kids Matter] brought a diverse group of diverse parents together who would not have ordinarily been together. I think that is real strength of the programme.’’

Head Teacher, St Richards School

Our Model

Kids Matter partners with local churches and Christian charities with a family oriented mission, as well as organisations that share a vision for reaching parents and carers facing disadvantage where they are. Our 6 week, evidence-informed programme is effective and accessible. Trained facilitators, who are also parents, run groups, which are coordinated by community links with pre-existing community relationships.

Who are Community Links?

Community links can be other professionals, or even local parents, who are well connected to parents in the community and can help invite and co-ordinate Kids Matter groups for our trained facilitators to run.


Is it for you?

Is family your passion? Are you keen to see change in our society by virtue of building healthy families and strong communities? If so Kids Matter could be part of how you support families facing disadvantage in your community.
