What support does Worcestershire have on offer?


Harmony at Home is Worcestershire’s approach to the Reducing Parental Conflict (RPC) initiative in partnership with the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) and organisations from their multi-agency Reference group.

Parental conflict, which can range from a lack of warmth and emotional distance, right through to swearing and shouting, is known to be a risk factor for poor child outcomes, particularly when conflict is frequent, intense and poorly resolved.

Courses for Parents






We are delighted at Matchborough First School  to announce we have embraced the Thrive approach and have our own Thrive room.  Sharon Frampton is our Thrive practitioner who identifies the developmental needs of the individual child. 


The connections children and young people have with the adults around them is key. Repetition of positive experiences  developed through  Thrive activities supports their development, helping them to feel:

• Good about themselves and know that they matter

• increase their sense of security and trust

• increase their emotional well-being

• improve their capacity to be creative and curious

• increase their self-esteem and confidence to learn

• learn to recognise and regulate their feelings

• learn to think before behaving in a certain way 


There is lots more information on the Thrive  website and Thrive community Facebook group.
