Our Purpose

Uplifting and transforming the lives of children and families.

Our Purpose

Creating ripples of change for children, families and community.

We see you. We hear you. The work you do matters. And now, here’s a new way forward.

At the core of our work is understanding— of both the impact of adversity on children and families, and your important work as a professional who cares deeply about helping the communities you serve.

We journey to the ‘why’ of children’s challenges and difficulties, exploring what is happening in their brain and in their mind, to reveal what they’re truly communicating. And then we empower you to understand and respond to the needs of children and families you support—building deep, positive connections and ripples of change. 

Our work is rooted in attachment theory, trauma theory and neuroscience, and we translate learnings and skills to the practical and everyday for those who work in early learning services, schools, women’s refuges, family support and health services. When a child feels secure and has the social and emotional skills they need for healthy development, they’re more likely to reach their potential, contribute positively to society and become healthy role models in their own families as adults.

The future of society depends on early human development.

The work we do together today is ultimately about changing our future society for the better. Children and families who’ve experienced adversity can flourish.

As Susan Cole says, “children who’ve experienced trauma can flourish.”

We’re here to show you the way.

We give to the Indigenous Literacy Foundation which provides remote Indigenous Communities with literacy resources—such as books in First Languages—to support their aspirations for Community and Culture.

To the newborn, love is action; it is the attentive, responsive, nurturing care that adults provide.
