Parenting UK, part of Family Lives, is a national membership body for the parenting workforce. Parenting support makes a proven difference to family life and children’s outcomes, and our role in helping practitioners is key.
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.
At the heart of everything we do are our members and the families they help. Parenting can be tough at times, with the right help at the right time, the lives
of parents, carers and children can be transformed.

Parenting UK is the only membership body for those working with parents and carers and we will improve the performance of the parenting workforce by providing quality support to our members through tailored information, events, training and by facilitating the sharing of best practice and knowledge.
Parenting UK will champion the role of parents and carers in improving outcomes for children and the wider social and financial benefits to society as a whole. We believe parenting should be seen as the most important job in the world. We will promote a more positive image of parenting in the media and the role it plays in giving children the best possible start in life, increasing their chances of a good education and a positive role in the future.
Parenting UK is the voice for the parenting workforce. We regularly attend government and sector roundtables, seminars and working groups on issues ranging from helping parents talk to their children about alcohol, the steering group for the Family Nurse Partnership trial, the early childhood forum and many more.
Parenting UK is well placed to fulfil this aim through our connections with the workforce and other relevant organisations.
Parenting UK is committed to being as efficient and effective as possible both in what we do and how we do it. Over the next five years we will maximise the efficiency of our internal systems.
