We are announcing a free online course for Family Support Workers and Community Family Workers working alongside Early Years settings in Gloucestershire to help you in your work with families in these challenging times.

What is Facts4Life?

Facts4Life is a health resilience programme for early years, primary and secondary settings (including parents) that provides opportunities to learn more about physical and mental health. Commissioned by NHS Gloucestershire Clinical Commissioning Group, we have trained teachers from more than 300 settings in the county who are using our approach to building resilience. Over the last two years, we have developed our Healthy Families resources and shared these with over 180 Family Support Workers and Family Liaison Officers.

This course will:

  • outline the three key messages that underpin the Facts4Life approach to resilience which we disseminate to children and parents
  • provide FREE resources relating to physical and mental health that you can use with children and their families, e.g. encouraging sleep routines, physical activity, healthy eating etc.
  • support you in your work with parents/carers to develop skills of self-regulation and co-regulation
  • help you to promote good attendance in school
  • provide follow up support in using Facts4Life materials
