Introducing nurtureuk

Our vision

A world where no child fails through lack of nurture and educational opportunity.

Our mission

nurtureuk is dedicated to improving the mental health and wellbeing of children and young people and removing barriers to learning by promoting nurture in education.

What we do

nurtureuk is working tirelessly to promote access to education for all. With increasing numbers of children and young people affected by social, emotional and behavioural difficulties inhibiting their progress and limiting their life chances, nurtureuk has developed a range of interventions and support to give vulnerable children and young people the opportunity to be the best they can be. Whether it is delivering certified training, supporting whole-school or authority-wide nurturing schools approach or promoting evidence-based research, nurtureuk is providing quality support and resources to make nurturing provision a reality for pupils across the UK and beyond.


nurtureuk is a charity registered in the UK and is managed by a Board of Trustees who are volunteers drawn from education and other backgrounds.
