About Us

So, let me introduce us to you.

We are The National Parenting Initiative.  We are a Christian signposting charity, with a vision to encourage churches to support and empower parents.  We don’t write parenting courses or materials ourselves, but we signpost to great courses that we believe can help strengthen any family.   Most of the courses are accessible to people of all beliefs or none.

Surely parenting courses are just for people who desperately need them.
This is simply not true!  We wholeheartedly believe that parenting courses and other parenting resources (for example; one off online seminars, books, podcasts etc) are for absolutely any parent to take time to think about how they parent and why, learn some tips from people further along on the journey and to ask advice on navigating particular seasons of parenting.

Ok, but what exactly do you do?
We do all we can to encourage parents through our social media platforms (Facebook, Instagram and Twitter) and have launched two series’ on our YouTube Channel, and have a podcast.  We also update our  Blog with encouraging posts.
Central to our values is the Bible verse Malachi 4 v 6, “He will turn the hearts of the fathers to their children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers”.  Our hope and vision is to see families strong, empowered and supported.  It’s as simple as that.

How can I get involved with your work?
You can connect with us through following us on social media, signing up for our newsletter or by donating to the charity. To find out what we’re currently up to, find our latest newsletters here.

We're delighted to be a Body in Association with Churches Together in England.
