The I Matter Awards Scheme 

Education to support prevention of problems

I MATTER RELATIONSHIP HEALTH AWARDS SCHEME 

What is the I Matter Award Scheme?

The I Matter Awards support our preparation, prevention and strengthening programmes.  They are an optional extra for the recovery programme.   The Awards are only available via member schools and services with a licensed Link or Lead.  Currently this is only in the Kendal area.

Participation in the I Matter Awards offers professionals and parents and young people a structured supported opportunity to take time out to think about relationships and about what the research evidence tells us makes the most difference.   The training steps of each award are designed to support increased self awareness and insight that will assist the making of well informed choices in family, work or community roles.

The I Matter Awards focus on the skills needed to improve the health and happiness of relationships as key to mental health and wellbeing of families and communities across the life span.  Participation in the Award Scheme, offers stimulating learning, new perspectives on everyday experiences, fun time chatting with others and making new friends and opportunities to discover new interests and talents.

The I Matter Awards offer a structure through which to develop essential skills for life and work through improving confidence in core relationships as well as a valuable mark of achievement.   They can offer strong foundations and a powerful complement to a wide range of other therapeutic and educational interventions.
