Building stronger families
We support families facing the toughest challenges. We give families the skills and coping strategies needed to make family life stable and happy again.
Funded by the Big Lottery Fund as part of its Improving Futures programme, The Rayne Foundation, Blagrave Trust and BBC Children in Need, we work with families to develop their strengths and design a plan that will help them deal with the issues they are facing.
If you are experiencing child to parent violence, you don’t have to face it alone. We have supported hundreds of parents, carers and children through our workshops. In 78% of cases, there is a reduction in violent and aggressive incidences as well as improved life chances for children, reduced stress levels and improved relationships at home. We support parents with children aged 5 to 18 years.
“We had got to the point where we couldn’t cope and I have no doubt I would have had to put him into care. The change is brilliant.”
- NVR is not a timed intervention or stand-alone parenting tool. NVR is a therapeutic approach supporting parents and carers in resisting aggressive and violent behaviours in young people.
- The model includes the utilisation of previously difficult relationships within the wider family and fractured parent & child relationships.
- NVR enables parents/carers to use methods of non-violent direct action to promote safer relationships.
- NVR model aids parents/care givers to restore a caring dialogue between parent and child.
- NVR supports parents/carers to break the taboo and resist keeping violence a secret and maintain safer relationships.
- We will identify the need for safety and protection, the need for support in meeting developmental challenges, the need for a sense for a coherent narrative of family and self and either incorporate this into the key work or feed this back if key work is not required.

Now when Harry passes his dad he doesn’t hit him; he tells him he loves him or gives him a kiss instead.
