Happiness and Domestic Life
We are delighted to announce that we have a new book "Happiness and Domestic Life". In a month this will be on pre-sale and at the end of August, the prestigious publisher Routledge will start shipping. We are already working on the launches, in the meantime, you can see here its table of contents.
Have we looked through the peephole before we let technology in?
Last week we participated in a meeting with the Spanish association The Family Watch, they invited HRF to talk about the impact of technology in the home. And although there are no magic recipes, you can read our latest post in which we summarised some ideas. It is a joy for us to be a source of inspiration for other associations working daily for homes and families in other countries around the world.
Homes on the Breadline
The home is the place where the family returns each day to be fed. Both physically and emotionally. Fine words do not make full stomachs, but healthy attitudes to material things can and do sustain us. Here is our latest post on the BeHomeBlog.

Our chairman Bryan K. Sanderson, CBE tells the latest news on the occasion of the quarterly newsletter. He highlights some of the most important milestones of the last three months but also announces what is to come.
Far from Home
Images of families fleeing their homes are sadly not that rare on our screens – from Syria, Iraq, Yemen and Afghanistan to name only a few from recent years. The events of the last week in Ukraine have brought the reality and the horror of such images much closer to home for many of us who live in the West.
Queen’s Anniversary Prize
At HRF, we are delighted to share with you the message sent by the Vice-Chancellor of Nottingham Trent University. We also celebrate the Prize and our partnership. And we would love to continue working with our patron Professor Mohamed Gamal Abdelmonem.
Learning from adversity
Today the content of this post should be different. Our event was unfortunately postponed because Covid19 forced us to do so. We hope to be able to celebrate this launch at a later date and we thank all those who have been working to make this possible.
