Every Friday I post some links to articles or other resources that have caught my eye during the week. Some might be quite recent, but others might be older ones I have revisited or recently discovered. They will mainly focus on families, community engagement or environmental sustainability, but not necessarily.

Leopards can’t change their spots but domestic violence programmes do change lives from The Conversation

Community engagement
