About Us

Our Vision

A child’s secure attachment to at least one caregiver is the foundation of healthy human development. For this reason, the importance of attachment should be understood and seen as an integral part of being human.

Sub-Committees

Public Awareness Committee

Which currently involves developing a brochure for new parents, and will eventually involve how to spread the best practice attachment information to parents, perhaps by bus ads, a commercial, or posters.

Corporate Development Committee

We are exploring ways to generate funding for public awareness initiatives, which may involve pitching ideas to the corporate community.
