Changing Futures North East believes the relationships in our lives matter!
A variety of healthy relationships inside and outside of the family, and the workplace, protect us for harm and help us thrive. Substantial research evidence demonstrates the value of healthy relationships and their links to positive outcomes.
When relationships are damaged, there is poorly managed conflict, or they are not healthy for us or others, the results can be damaging. They can stop people feeling and doing well, reaching their potential and lead to children being unhappy and suffering.
Changing Futures North East thinks that supporting healthier relationships needs to be at the heart of strategy and practice including government policy, business strategy, and social work and early help practice. Healthy relationships are good for business performance, good for teams, and within families a great protective factor for children.
