At The I Can Centre™ we engage in multi-disciplinary research and training with a vision of "a kinder society" which includes health and well-being for all. Towards this vision, we work collaboratively with statutory and non-statutory partners to understand challenges, and find community and behavioural change solutions that are also timely, feasible, effective and evidence based.

These solutions are then tested, investigated and developed further across diverse groups of individuals and organisations.

Our centre offers a range of informal, community-based training courses that will support and promote better physical health and well-being, including supports to manage most types of cravings and compulsions.
We are also involved at the cutting edge of a range of interventions to address emotional health problems. These include innovative evidence-based solutions and training packages so that people can gain information and techniques to manage different health challenges, ideally before a significant hit or emergency occurs!
