About the Thrive Approach and its impact

We're on a mission to positively impact millions of children and young people's lives


Thrive has been working in partnership with educators and organisations to help young people feel safe, supported and ready to learn since 1994. For the staff at over 2,800 settings, the Thrive Approach is reducing exclusions, boosting attendance and ultimately, transforming lives.

Early Years

How does the Thrive Approach work?

Thrive offers a trauma-informed, whole school or setting approach that helps to improve the mental health and wellbeing of children and young people.

We do this by providing you with training, resources and an award-winning online tool, so you can better understand the needs of your pupils and provide targeted, effective support where it’s needed.

With its focus on building secure relationships and providing positive experiences, the Thrive Approach has been proven to improve behaviour, attendance and learning outcomes.
