Partnership for Children
I work in a school
Our evidence-based Skills for Life social and emotional programmes teach children how to cope with everyday difficulties, communicate, and build emotional resilience.
I work in early years
We are delighted to be working with the Education Endowment Foundation to develop a new Skills for Life Early Years programme for 3-5 year olds.
I am looking for FREE wellbeing activities
Use our FREE wellbeing activities for schools, early years settings and families to help children process feelings, communicate effectively, cope with their anxieties and deal with change and loss.
I am outside of the UK
The Skills for Life programmes run in a variety of countries and cultures across the globe. Your organisation could run our programmes by becoming an International Licensed Partner.

Research and Evaluation
Evaluation Results have shown classes who took part in the Skills for Life programmes acheived:
Better social skills
Improved group climate
Increased emotional literacy
Increased coping skills & resilience
I feel that the Skills for Life programmes not only help children solve their own problems, but they also begin to develop empathy and how they can support others who are experiencing difficulties.
