About Us

All successful journeys start with noticing new details that have been overlooked


Relationship Health Matters and I Matter Training are on a mission to bring some shifts in thinking about how to improve child and adult wellbeing in families, schools and communities.

Since 2010, we have been working with partners in a full range of agencies and roles to explore the question of what the research evidence is telling us about the way to address some of the greatest challenges we currently face for child and adult wellbeing. We think Relationship Health is the missing link!.

Through our innovative approach, adults and young people gain the skills and knowledge they need to build better lives.
