Welcome to RECAP

RECAP Ltd was born from a need to not only build more research in and around education, child development and parenting, but to make this information accessible to those who need it. Research on these topics are heavily available and accessible to academics and researchers, but there is a real need to give access to the people who are directly working with the children who need supporting. Parents, carers, teachers, and professionals in the field all deserve to be able to freely access the latest research that enables them to do their jobs to the best of their ability. 

RECAP Ltd centers around the child and the family. Providing a range of services to improve the lived experiences of families in a range of different ways. Through training and education, support and advocacy, and research and consultancy we aim to equip individuals with the skills, knowledge and confidence to thrive. And through the podcast and literature, we provide a platform to share experiences, information and knowledge in easy to digest ways.  

Occasionally I will be sharing about the research studies I am conducting and providing you with the opportunity to participate if you wish. Details will be shared under the 'PROJECTS' tab as and when recruitment is live. 

RECAP Ltd provides individuals with the practical and cognitive skills to protect, support and empower children and families, all wrapped up within our supportive community.
