To date, 88 Kids Matter groups have been run in 50 economically deprived communities; reaching 1347 children from a range of ethnic backgrounds – of all faiths, and none.
“I really enjoyed the small group and I think it would have been harder if it was a large group ‘cos in this way we got to know each other as kind of as real people.”
“They had the tables all set up with refreshments and then we chatted and it just felt quite informal, so that was quite nice and then you know lunch was provided afterwards and so it was just really nice.”
“Since doing the course, since doing the love languages quiz, he (7-year-old) wants to spend more time with me and now his handwriting is better because I now understand his love language better. I’m learning myself as well; I’m learning patience.”
“It was great that they had a crèche and it was also nice for me to kind of just let them play. You could see them play and you knew they were in good hands and you could get on and just enjoy your bit of time you know for coffee and just it was like being amongst friends almost.”
