The emotionally friendly home cards provide a structure for parents, carers and social workers working with children and young people to respond in a meaningful way so that children thrive.

The home tool can be used by schools when working with parents so that parents, carers and school staff can use a  Common Language (PDF, 316KB) to discuss needs, behaviour, and strategies.
