A Quick Introduction

Many children and young people face significant challenges as they grow up. Sometimes, aspects of family, school or community life can be improved, helping to prevent the development of unhealthy or antisocial behaviours, and promoting higher levels of wellbeing and achievement.

The Strengthening Families Programme 10-14{UK} links evidence, education and practice for effective prevention work in communities throughout the United Kingdom. We can help you to achieve the best outcomes for children and young people in your community.

Take a look through this website to see how we can help you to help others.

£1.5m Awarded to Help Strengthen Families

Oxford Brookes University’s Strengthening Families Programme 10-14 UK (SFP10-14 (UK)) has received significant investment to help prevent young people in the UK becoming involved in criminal activity and anti-social behaviour.

Since the early 90s, alcohol misuse and other behavioural problems have been increasing among young people. The SFP 10-14(UK) aims to strengthen prevention efforts to reduce these trends.

The £1,489,679 investment from the Big Lottery Fund (BIG) will allow the SFP10-14(UK) to be rolled out to new areas of the UK and Oxford Brookes’ work will have a particular focus on Muslim families.
