Promoting psychological wellbeing through relationships

Human-beings are hard-wired for connection

Evidence shows that a sense of community and strong relational bonds are the best predictors of emotional wellbeing. 

At little & brave we believe that promoting secure attachment bonds between children & caregivers will significantly reduce psychological distress in our society for generations to come.

What we do

We provide caregivers with tools

to strengthen these attachment bonds so that children can grow up to feel safe and connected in their communities. 

So what is a secure attachment and how can we facilitate it?

Attachment theory is recognised as one of the major theories of developmental science. It is typically used by psychologists as a framework to understand mental illness and relational difficulties.

A secure attachment is typically facilitated by a warm and loving bond between caregiver and child. The basic premise of attachment is that children are deeply dependant on their caregivers for survival and require constant validation, kindness and care in order to feel safe in the world. Children who are raised with the belief that their primary caregiver will be consistent and available to them are less likely to feel anxious or lonely - and therefore less likely to act out those feelings by testing their relationships.


Children can form secure attachments with teachers, parents and caregivers in their community.

There are four attachment styles:

Secure Attachment
Avoidant attachment
Disorganised attachment.
