Tips to get your family into life

With a few pointers from the tips below, you and your family could get more out of every day. Or, try some of our challenges to really get things rolling!


  • Instead of your family watching TV or playing games on your phone, computer or other devices, try to get moving together as a family instead! To find out more go to the resources section.

  • Have a look at what's on at your local Communities@Work community centre. Often there are free classes or groups you can join with other like-minded people and families.

  • Try volunteering in your local community. You can help a cause that interests you, and can offer as little or as much of your time as you like.

  • Life as a parent often feels like it's a rush from one thing to the next. Try to take some time out for yourself this week by locking a coffee date with a friend into your diary or catching up for some adult conversation. Your kids will learn that fostering friendships is important.

  • Try to eat some meals with the whole family. Sharing meals is a great way to be together and enjoy eating.
