Happier Families Service Happier Families Service

Being part of a loving family is important, whether parents, carers, or children. All families have their issues and challenges, drawing from the growing body of research from positive psychology and the science of wellbeing, there are tips, skills, and tools we can use to take practical actions that can help increase how happy we all feel and that can help us function better individually and together.

The Happier Families programme aims to support families to learn about and try out these tips, skills, and tools to boost the wellbeing of individual members and the family, to improve the quality of the time they spend together. It’s aims are to provide a toolkit to help participants:

  • Explore ways to build their own and others’ happiness.
  • Learn tips to try when struggling.
  • Build happier relationships.
  • Enjoy family time together more.
