There is lots of evidence to support our belief that relationships matter.
The capacity of people to establish and maintain relationships at home and in our wider social networks is a key determinant of health and wellbeing (L Gasser, OnePlusOne)
Outcomes for Children
The evidence is clear that it is strong stable relationships between adults in the home – parents, grandparents and other caring adults – and among all these adults and children in a family that have the biggest impact on children’s happiness and healthy development (Support for All: The Families & Relationships Green Paper, Department for Children, Schools & Families, UK)
Most parents argue with one another, it is a normal part of family life, but it is clear that the way in which parents argue affects their children. Children exposed to badly managed conflict are at risk of poorer physical and mental health and failing to reach their potential at school (Reynolds et al., 2014)
The most successful organisations effectively engage their employees, leading to higher productivity and better financial outcomes (Gallup Research).
Pathways to Homelessness
One of the trigger events for homelessness is relationship breakdown which impacts most severely on economically vulnerable households (The 2014 Implementation Plan on the State’s Response to Homelessness)
