Reducing conflict below the threshold of domestic abuse...
Parents and carers play a critical role in giving children the experiences and skills they need to succeed. However, studies have found that children who are exposed to frequent, intense, and poorly resolved conflict can be negatively affected in the short and longer term. It can impact on children’s mental health, their early emotional and social development, their educational attainment, and employability - limiting their chances to lead fulfilling, happy lives.
The 'Leicester City | Reducing Conflict' programme - funded by the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) and delivered on behalf of Leicester City Council - has been created to support professionals that work with Leicester City children and / or families.
Through a multi-layered approach to professional development, every professional can benefit from one or more of our sessions that aim to increase knowledge, skills and confidence in: identifying families experiencing conflict, delivering interventions, providing other support to reduce conflict, and / or promoting the funded services that can be referred to.

Our regular Awareness Training sessions are essential for any professional that works with Leicester City children and / or families. This training will help you understand the importance of the 'reducing conflict' agenda and acquaint you with best practice on how to recognise and escalate conflict matters.
Skills & Confidence Training
Our one-off Skills and Confidence Training sessions are essential for any frontline practitioner that works with children and / or families who experience conflict. These sessions will help you develop your skills and confidence in working with conflict areas and provide practical strategies you can apply to the challenges you face in your role.
'Meet the Service' Sessions
Our ‘Meet the Service’ Series of sessions are essential for any professional that works with children and / or families interested in learning more about the 'conflict pathway'. These sessions offer you the opportunity to hear from, and ask questions of, the various public and voluntary sector services which support the 'reducing conflict' agenda.
