Helping to create
healthier families and communities

Resolving crises in families and communities

The health and well-being of the family is crucial to the development and strength of our communities. Many vulnerable families are affected by problems such as drug and alcohol abuse, crime, mental illness, homelessness and unemployment.

  • Over 3 million children are living in poverty in the UK
  • 154,000 children in England live with a parent who has a severe and enduring mental health problem
  • Two women die every week in England and Wales, and one man every fortnight, as a result of domestic violence

About Transcendental Meditation

Transcendental Meditation is a simple, natural mental technique that is easy to learn and to practise (for twenty minutes, twice daily). It does not involve any religion, philosophy, or change in lifestyle, but rather upholds and uplifts the cultural and religious traditions of all people. The technique is taught only by certified instructors with extensive experience through a standardized course of instruction that ensures maximum results.
