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!


  • 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.

  • Try using incentives to get your kids to want to eat at the table. Your younger ones could blow out a candle at the end of the meal and older kids could light the candle (under parental supervision).

  • After school one day, why not have a surprise picnic with the kids and chat with them about their day at school?

  • 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.
