Our story

Helping Families Flourish

Our Background Story

We are Sweet Families. Our mission is to provide positive, transformational resources to nurture healthier and happier families. Our primary focus is on the happiness of children – whatever their circumstances and whatever their background. How we enact that in the world is by providing courses and information to help those who care for children – parents, teachers, carers, therapists and others – do so in a healthier and more fulfilling way. Our knowledge comes from over 30 years of working with children, and our passion comes from our belief that creating better families creates a better world.
