Family Links

Welcome

Family Links has been working throughout the UK for over 20 years to support children, parents and teachers with their emotional health and wellbeing, with an emphasis on early intervention.

We aim to empower children, parents, families, schools and workplaces to prioritise positive emotional health, by delivering innovative, high quality training to health and social care services, third sector organisations, schools and universities. We aim to reach parents and their families whether they are at home, at school or at work.

Our Nurturing Programme, which underpins all of our work, is designed to provide adults and children with the understanding, skills and ability to lead emotionally healthy lives, build resilience, empathy, self-esteem and support positive relationships.

Schools will be required to deliver relationships’ education (RSE)

From September 2020 schools will be required to deliver relationships’ education (RSE).

Health & Safety Expo – London ExCel – June 2019

Great to be part of the Safety & Health Expo presenting our emotional health workplace workshops, a long-term, preventative approach to create a climate of psychological safety and a trusting culture based on healthy relationships.

Why this matters for your organisation:

  • highest performing teams have one thing in common: psychological safety (Google Survey on team performance)
  • only half of UK employees feel that their working relationships are supportive two-thirds feel that they do not deal well with important problems in life
  • nearly a quarter find that after something goes wrong it takes them a long time to get back to normal
  • creativity and innovation
  • staff turnover and reduced short and long-term absence rates
