The Parenting Programme Developers' Group (PPDG)


The Parenting Programme Developers’ Group was formed at the beginning of 2015 to provide a forum for programme developers' voices to be heard at national policy level. 

The aims of the group are to:

  • provide an opportunity for programme developers to meet regularly to share and exchange their experiences
  • promote the adoption of best practice in parenting education
  • provide a mechanism for developers to have a national voice 

The group appointed an independent Chair, Dorit Braun, in January 2016.  After discussions with Parenting UK as the membership body for parenting professionals, it was agreed that the PPDG would sit as a working group of Parenting UK who would provide secretariat support.
