Community and Family Leadership Academy

Finding out what is important to parents, their young people and their community. We help families flourish by giving them time and space to uncover their values, working with a powerful community of fellow parents and carers. Parents get the chance to “be the change” in their own life but also create change for their young people and community.

Our Family Wellbeing Partnership is working in partnership with Clackmannanshire Council to improve the wellbeing and capabilities of families and young people, initially in Alloa South and East.

We are working with What Matters to you to deliver our values-based leadership and help families receive the right help at the right time in their own community in East Ayrshire and Dundee.

What happens on a leadership academy?

Parents and carers find stillness. Discover their strengths. Create powerful networks. And become leaders for their children and their community.

Here’s how:

  • By building confidence and improving relationships
  • By raising aspirations for parents, carers and young people
  • By improving health and wellbeing
  • By connecting with young people, their schools and their communities
