Adult-Child Well-Being

'I Matter' Training

Helping communities to help children

Our Concern and Our Mission 

THE PROBLEM

THERE IS WIDESPREAD CONCERN ABOUT THE MENTAL HEALTH AND WELL-BEING OF OUR CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE.  

OUR VIEW ON THE PROBLEM

ADULT WELLBEING AND CHILD WELLBEING ARE COMPLETELY INTERLINKED. TO BE CONFIDENT AND HELPFUL TO CHILDREN, ADULTS NEED AN UNDERSTANDING OF CHILD DEVELOPMENT, STRESS STATES AND THEIR OWN ROLE. YET WE BELIEVE THIS ISSUE IS BEING OVERLOOKED.

OUR MISSION

THE MISSION OF THE I MATTER PROJECT IS TO HELP PUT PARENT SUPPORT, ADULT-CHILD RELATIONSHIPS AND CHILD DEVELOPMENT IN A MUCH MORE CENTRAL PLACE ON THE MAP OF CHILD PRACTICE IN OUR SCHOOLS AND COMMUNITIES

     OUR VISION IS AS FOLLOWS:

1. PROFESSIONALS AND PARENTS ACCESSING HIGH QUALTY TRAINING ON CHILDREN'S SOCIAL EMOTIONAL DEVELOPMENT AND THE SIGNFICANCE OF THEIR OWN ROLE.

2. SCHOOLS VALUED FOR THEIR ROLE IN BUILDING PARENTAL SKILLS AND CONFIDENCE  

3. EVERYONE PRIORITISING THE HEALTHY SOCIAL DEVELOPMENT OF ALL CHILDREN 

OUR STRATEGY IS AS FOLLOWS: 

We aim to support community thinking.  We provide online learning which is best approached within local real relationships.  Our goal is to support important conversations and stronger skills. We work with communities of professionals to set up these training opportunities. 

We are currently working with the Kendal Integrated Care Community (see pages 5 and 6).  We are delighted to have now set up the foundations for our first I Matter Community Hub.  We have a rolling program of training with opportunities for professionals and parents to get involved.

This is what we have achieved so far:

We now have a rolling program of local CPD accredited training that is running well in our Kendal hub.  It is being attended by professionals from a wide range of disciplines including GPs, Social workers, Teachers, Teaching Assistants and Therapists

We also now have our first I Matter Schools!  Ghyllside Primary school has a reception teacher who is taking a lead on working with parents.    

The course feedback has been consistently positive: click here for parent feedback and from professionals.

This is what we provide...

We provide  CPD accredited training for professionals building their capacity to provide locally supported training.  

We work with schools to set up inhouse early help capacity to work with parents.

We work with parents mainly through participating schools but also have a self-help learning option for those not linked to a member project.

We provide benchmarking tools that help professionals and parents understand current levels of support needed.  These also provide the means to monitor progress.

This is who we we want to work with

Committed professionals and parents who want to support us in building healthier communities for our children.

The evidence on which we build our commitment:

The I Matter Framework offers a carefully considered synthesis of well evidenced theory and practices known to be key to positive outcomes in the care of all children and families.

We do hope that you will join us.  Become part of something exciting.  Join a growing network of professionals and parents who are training and working to make a fundamental difference in child and adult well being through a community building approach.   This is a journey that will enhance your life!
