International Day of Families

14 May 2014

Our director, Penny Mansfield, comments on the 20th anniversary of the International Day of Families marked annually on May 15.

She said: “It is in our families that we first form and learn how to maintain healthy relationships throughout our lives.

“Being able to form and maintain relationships is essential for getting a good education a stable job and generally thriving in life.

“Those first relationships formed within the family are crucial in creating a foundation for bonds we form in later life be they with peers, teachers, employers or partners.”
