In the UK as many as 4.2 million children are currently being raised in poverty, with little support for their parents to manage poverty-related stressors. In areas of deprivation the rates of disruptive behaviour in children are significantly higher due to the negative psychological, social and economic consequences of their environment. Research has shown that the most effective, early intervention to help children is group-based parenting programmes. That is what we do!
Join our growing community of Family Champions – people like you – who give anything they can on a monthly basis 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.
“I give to Kids Matter as I believe early intervention is key to helping children change the negative trajectory their circumstances may have set them on. I love hearing how even the smallest of changes to a family’s routine and understanding of one another can have such a positive impact on the children.”
Theresa, Family Champion
