PARENTING IN THE COMMUNITY

Equipping the Church to deliver effective parenting programmes within their communities, schools and prisons.

OUR ETHOS

Our model is to partner with churches and charities who want to reach families struggling with adversity in their local communities and support them in doing so. Kids Matter parenting groups are uniquely relational. Facilitators foster an atmosphere of trust by sharing their own parenting experiences as well as imparting key learning points from our evidence based material. Provision of child care and delicious refreshments create a warm welcome and parents are invited to participate in ongoing wider community activities beyond the end of the programme.

OUR PROGRAMMES

• Kids Matter in Community (0-10 years old)
• Kids Matter in Prison

Topics covered include:
• Creating a healthy family
• Meeting childrens’ needs
• Play, praise, routines and boundaries
• Communication and setting long
term aims.

GETTING STARTED

Please contact us if you would like to find out more about how running Kids Matter parenting groups might work to reach families in your community setting.

RESEARCH

The Kids Matter 0-10 yrs programme, which is based on The Parenting Children Course by Nicky and Sila Lee, has been evaluated by Dr Eli Gardner, Child Psychologist with parents in a community setting and found to be effective in improving parental confidence and awareness and general family funcitioning as well as reducing child behaviour problems.
