We want to see every child in need raised in a strong family

We exist to help strengthen families facing disadvantages

We partner with local organisations and churches, along with their community networks to run our highly effective, evidence-informed and accessible parenting programmes in communities and in prisons.

The programme equips mums, dads and carers with the tools (confidence, competence and community) they need to build strong relationships and strong families, and reduce the impact of poverty on their children.
