  • Have you thought about developing your skills helping families and schools and young people have happier, healthier relationships?
  • Do you want ideas that can support you and others in the crisis and support a longer term view so you can come out of this stronger?

If so, read on to find out more about  how I Matter training and certification opportunities can help you to help

Right now we are looking to work with professionals who have known that something has been off track for a while and who know now that the ONLY way safely through this crisis is to invest carefully in supporting the understanding, skills and confidence of parents and carers.  We want to train professionals who want  to work with a systematic approach for their own immediate networks.  Our current priority is to break isolation and provide meaningful support and skills building to those who can make most difference to the well-being of young people and community .

Training in the I Matter Framework aims to address some key gaps in professional and parent-carer confidence about how to support children who are challenging or struggling.  It focuses on ensuring that child and family practitioners are offered clear integrated and practical tools that are adapted right now to the challenges we are in.
