Would you like to be part of a group of people who are determined to be part of bringing about some changes?

Would you like support to think about home as well as about work relationships?   Professionals who are also parents-carers have a key role to play!

Welcome!  You may have come to this page for a variety of reasons but you are likely wanting to see some changes!

The changes you want to see might be at work or at home or a bit of both.  The good news is that I Matter is relevant for both roles.  IN fact we particularly we enjoy working with professionals who are parents and carers where there are currently or have historically been some moderate challenges!

The reason for this is that professionals who are also parents generally understand very quickly what I Matter is all about and so the learning progresses on two channels - how these ideas are relevant at home - and how these ideas are relevant at work.  

You will also know just how difficult a parent-carer role can be and why there is a need for some rethinking.  Do get in touch! 

More confident support for young people:   Informing yourself so that you can know more confidently about how to help young people in your direct care when they are struggling is something that any professional will benefit from. 

We can provide support with taking forward a Relationship Health Skills Curriculum in your setting once you have an informed senior leadership team who are working together on a strategy.  This takes some time to build.

Services to Parents-Carers:  We only provide services to parents and carers if they can provide a recommendation from a Link professional who knows both child and family.    This is mostly in a community hub where schools have strong links with GP's.   
This is because child and family issues are often complex and need the support of a local community.   This network takes time to build.

Therefore If you want to make it possible to help parents-carers you can equip yourself by
+ starting conversations with professionals in your own organisation and community to work towards a community hub
+ completing your own Five Steps training  with at least one other professional so as to get your organisation registered as
+ a full member organisation linked to a community hub (you will need a minimum of 4 organisations committed to working together)
+ a link professional for your organisation (you will learn how to recognise readiness for online study and how to make recommendations)
a Lead Facilitator (you will learn how to facilitate small group discussion to increase capacity for supported learning)
