I Matter Framework Training


How can professionals and parents work better together for healthier, happier outcomes for young people and families?

We provide high quality CPD for the children's workforce, offering training and coaching in using the Adult-Child Well-being 'I Matter' Framework for professionals and for parents-carers.


The I Matter Framework brings research evidence together into a very practical whole

Our training helps you think more deeply about well-being and relationships at school and at home

With discussion and community and teamwork its never too late to make a difference

Starting with YOU and your role - we start with the local and think global!

+ There is widespread concern about children's wellbeing - and about community and planetary health. 

+ There is also growing understanding of the impact of trauma and ACES  

+ We say we are committed to improving wellbeing...


+ YET in our policies and practices and attitudes we do not respect the foundations of child brain development

+ We do not place enough value on the adult role in children's social-emotional progress and maturation

+ The training of our front line professionals in the foundations of child development is very sparten

+ We don't invest in core understanding, nor track the skills involved, even for those in really challenging roles

+ However the skills involved are complex and the learning opportunties amazing


+ Instead we see a yawning gap where effective training and coaching can make a real diffference

+ When we look closely we see that behind every struggling child are struggling adults - in school and at home.  

+ Behind struggling adults there can be struggling communities and environments.

+ In our policies and practices we need to grasp that the adult role matters!  The adult awareness matters!   

+ For ALL children - So we must stop overlooking this key detail.


+ At school and at home. The evidence is clear that Adult-Child relationships matter   

+ The good news too is that research really shows us the way, and what details are key.

+ When we understand more about ourselves, a lot starts to make sense

+ When we understand better and feel supported and valued ....

    ...adults and young people become more motivated to act in healthy ways.. it's not rocket science

+ Children with additional needs, need adults with advanced understanding & skills


+ So I Matter Training is a small project aiming to think with others about some big issues

+ We aim to help adults to understand better, creating direction and better emotional safety for all.  

+ We are working towards helping schools work more effectively with children with challenges and with parents

+ Our goal is to improve foundational relationship skills as key to many outcomes.

+ As health inequalities and climate health concerns increase, this work is more important for children than ever before

The training has helped me with the children at school and also with my children at home.  

Now I can see the bigger picture.  I understand better why they react the way they do.  

I am much better at recognising signs of stress.  Teacher and Parent


This training has given me answers I have been looking for for 30 years!  GP and Parent






We help professionals. parents and young people work together better and feel less stressed     How?    By helping them see things differently.


If you are too busy and too stressed to make time to learn about your key role, you will always be too busy and too stressed!


It's quite simple really - we offer resources and encourage people to take time to think and learn about what is happening around them..
