Kids Matter programmes run in the heart of disadvantaged communities or in prisons. They are for parents and carers facing economic adversity and wanting to learn skills to help their children flourish. All our groups run for 6 weeks and are led by our trained facilitators in an informal and warm environment over food and refreshments, using our accessible and evidence-informed materials.
Kids Matter in Community
Kids Matter programmes run in local community settings such as: primary schools, nurseries, community centres and church halls. Kids Matter facilitators coordinate small groups of parents with community links, such as Head Teachers, family coordinators, GPs, Social Services, local family courts and other local parents.
Kids Matter in Prison
Kids Matter programmes work well in prison settings. Our trained facilitators coordinate groups with prison chaplains, Governors and Heads of Education to help parents in prison work on all aspects of family life.
