Relationships Matter Roadshows 2019

Nearly 100 people attended our Relationships Matter Roadshows in November and December, joining the campaign to improve relationships in Hertfordshire, reduce parental conflict, and improve outcomes for children.

Community organisations, the Police, GPs, Families First and a huge range of other agencies, all came together to pledge how they will improve relationships in Hertfordshire.

Our Road Shows were even discussed on the Stevenage Radio Show ‘Mind over Matter’. You can listen to the episode here: https://www.mixcloud.com/matt shoobridge/mind-over-matter-show-35/

Remember, you can help parents by:

  • Talking to them about their relationships. Make sure they are aware that conflict can impact on their children and that there is help available. There is a toolkit and training to help you have these conversations at: www.hertfordshire.gov.uk/betterrelationships
  • Signposting them to self-help. Our Hertfordshire webpage has information for parents about relationships, and where to go for local and online help: www.hertfordshire.gov.uk/parentrelationships
  • Referring them to specialist support if they need it. Any professional or volunteer working with a family in Hertfordshire can refer parents to the Parenting Togetherwww.parentingtogethersupportprogramme.org.uk
  • programme. This provides free evidence-based parental conflict support to parents, whether they are together or separated. To find out more, go to:
