Friendship Cards are a new educational tool thought to improve the lives of whoever makes use of them. The cards have been developed by Relationships are Forever Foundation, with the intention of helping children and youth develop their abilities to build strong relationships with their families, friends and others that they will come across during the course of their lives.

The first edition of Friendship Cards is focused on Resolving Conflicts. These cards aim to help students to:

  • Feel comfortable in saying how you feel, talking with each other and finding out what caused the disagreement;
  • Realise that you may have said or done something wrong;
  • Focus on taking positive steps and avoiding hurtful behaviour so that you can make up and be good friends again.

Courses for Educators and Parents/Guardians

The Foundation is organising a series of courses for Educators, Youth Workers, and Families (MQF Level 3) which will enable participants to learn how to use the friendship cards, as well as receive a resource pack.
