An I Matter Professional Directory
Welcome to the I Matter Directory
When it comes to children and families no-one can work alone. We are working towards an I Matter Directory and Network that can help professionals and parents identify others who have an understanding of what an I Matter approach is all about.
The Complete Register List includes all organisational members and professional members who have been a registered Member of the National Association for I Matter Practice during the last 2 years.
We aspire to the following standards for accredited registers which aim to both inform and protect the general public.
- Hold a voluntary register of Link and Lead practitioners
- Are committed to protecting the public
- Understand, monitor and control risks
- Are financially sound
- Inspire public confidence
- Develop our own knowledge
- Provide strong and effective governance
- Set good standards for practitioners on our register
- Ensure appropriate education and training for practitioners
- Run our register well
- Manage complaints fairly and effectively.
I Matter Training offers training in an approach. Therefore we do not provide core professional training and so all of our listed licensees must complete our core requirements AND provide evidence of being in good standing with another publically recognised professional body.

PROFESSIONAL USE LICENCE: If you want to actively use the resources in your own school or service setting to run supported learning sessions you will need to complete the professional supported learning pathway to obtain a Lead Professional licence and a listing on this site. If you simply want to be an active part of our network you can become a Link Professional. .
We love to share the I Matter Resources as they are so clear and helpful in communicating key and important ideas. However they work together as a set and so we want to preserve the I Matter learning experience through ensuring that they are offered to professionals and parents under a clear license agreement.
All of our licensees are asked to use our resources and support access to training in the context of a clear brief plan and are expected to provide a brief review and progress summary as our work together progresses.
If the school or community or professional that you are working with is not listed here then they are not - yet - licensed to use I Matter Resources with you and should not be doing so.
