Parenting UK, part of Family Lives, is a national membership organisation for those working with parents. Our strength has always been our members at grass roots level: communicating and sharing ideas, concerns and passions.
We support our members to be more effective by providing expertly tailored information about news and training, producing specialist events and resources, and by being a strong public voice on the importance of good parenting and the role of parenting support services.
