  • ACTOV Change CIC

    ACTOV is a Community Interest Company committed to delivering projects that will support people of all ages across all communities with a focus on deprived communities. The Parent Support Hub, a project of ACTOV Change CIC, has been piloting support for parents of children who have been excluded from mainstream school due to EBD (emotional, behavioural difficulties). We have discovered that most schools still have a long way to go in really teaming up with the parent to start creating some consistency in how the child's behaviour is managed between school and home. In order to improve, all children need this consistency. However our focus revolves around the fact that most bad behaviour is due to low emotional intelligence. We're currently working with The Gottman Institute in the USA who are world leaders in developmental psychology and who have been carrying out research on how to nurture emotional intelligence in our children for 40 years. With their help, we have designed training sessions for parents and school staff that have proven results for the child, the parent and the school.
