Our library of parenting resources was built up in partnership with colleagues at the Family and Parenting Institute and named in honour of Richard Evans, the benefactor of the Artemis Trust, the first funder of Parenting UK. Richard Evans and his late wife, Gai, made an indispensible contribution to making available services that are respectful of parents and children.
