Tomlin (previously Emily) Wilding and Danielle Heap founded CalmFamily, a social enterprise and collaborative community organisation, in the midst of saving and restoring the BabyCalm and ToddlerCalm programmes. In a subsequent merger with It’s a Sling Thing, and a move to make CalmFamily strategically successful, CalmFamily gained three new directors, Rowan Littlejohns, Emily Taylor and Jeni Atkinson. Each member of the leadership team are long-standing parent educators, successful entrepreneurs, and parents. We consider our roles as directors to be care-takers (or the parents) of the community and the organisation (the family) and we try to take the same approach to leadership as we do to all relationships; by collaborating for solutions, acceptance of situations and people as they are, by learning and growing together, meeting and balancing everyone’s needs, empathising, and responding to others with compassion. Between us we have 15 small humans to care for and more than 5 businesses.
