“Those that are nurtured best,

Incredible Families is a registered charitable trust (CC37705) committed to working alongside families, carers and practitioners to provide programmes that support emotional, social and cognitive wellbeing for children and their whanau.

We have chosen three evidence-based programmes that promote healthy and secure parent-child relationships with the knowledge that this is the most important protective factor for children’s self-esteem, emotional regulation, learning and positive peer relationships. Warm, responsive parenting contributes resilience in the face of chronic adversity and stress.

Any dollar spent supporting our early intervention programmes for families and training for practitioners to support families, is money well spent.
