NEW: Child and family partners

Emerging Minds is committed to enabling the voices of children and families with experiences of adversity and resilience to shape and contribute to our work. We refer to these relationships and processes as child and family partnerships.

For Emerging Minds, working with child and family partners brings unique richness and value to our work. It adds a dimension that cannot be achieved any other way.

Emerging Minds believes child and family partners provide unique and important perspectives (experience-based knowledge or evidence) which are valuable in terms of enhancing the quality of the products and outcomes for children and families, as well as the overall strategy and direction of the organisation.

With the following list we acknowledge those child and family partners who have worked intensively with us on reference and consultation groups whose advice has been central in producing our online courses and other content.
