What is Growing Together and why is it important?

Human beings change and grow– we do it all the time and in many different ways. Physical growth is easy to see as we grow from babies to children, teenagers to adults. But growing emotionally is also an important part of our development.


Things that upset us when we were younger may no longer overwhelm us as we grow and learn to cope with life’s ups and downs. Challenges and set-backs can help us to grow and adapt. Trying new things can help us to move beyond our comfort zone into a new realm of possibility and potential. However, emotional growth is
often a gradual process that happens over time, and sometimes we might feel a bit ‘stuck’.

At these times we are reminded of how much we need others in our lives to help us to keep growing.  We need our parents and carers, our teachers, our friends and others to support us to grow, especially when things get tough. We often need others to help us to believe in ourselves, to keep going, and to try doing
things a bit differently. Even when we have experienced really difficult challenges in our lives, with the right support, we can continue to grow and flourish.
