Families Matter Programmes

Families Matter offers a range of programmes to support families, young people and parents.

The aim of Families Matter is to support the development of resilient families who have the ability to utilise their skills and resources to meet life challenges. When we support families, we respect the dignity and worth of every individual and believe it is their own personal journey to develop solutions.

Families Matter approach has three core principles; strengths based, skills based and reflective practice, for developing and fostering abilities, resources and accomplishments within families.

Our programmes are evidence-based, and evidence informed, based on best practice and have proven to be effective. These programmes and supports are non-judgemental, confidential and free.
