Our Aim:

Our AimsThe aim of The Ministry of Parenting (CIC) is to work with children, parents, professionals and organisations developing creative, evidence-based solutions to the challenges faced by families in society today. 

The target is to provide an integrated approach to supporting families and individuals through the provision of information, support, guidance, group programmes, supported signposting, and training across Essex and the Eastern Region counties. The Ministry of Parenting (CIC) is committed to and believes in positive parenting interventions, particularly during children’s early years and adolescence. These are key points at which such interventions may avoid or reduce the need for expensive and long-term interventions in later life.

Our Objectives:

  • Ensure that the voice of parents and carers underpins everything we do.
  • Share our knowledge and expertise with parents and professionals to foster 
positive parenting practice through the provision of training, supervision and access 
to materials.
  • Offer targeted and specialist support to parents.
  • Maintain fidelity to evidence based programmes through supervision and coaching.
  • Promote high standards of safe and effective parenting practice amongst
 professionals.
  • Assist other organisations in the development of appropriate evidence-based
 programmes of support.
  • Help organisations understand the link between parenting and strategic targets 
and priorities.

What is a CIC?

A community interest company (CIC) is a new type of company introduced by the UK government in 2005 under the Companies Act 2006, designed for social enterprises that want to use their profits and assets for the public good. A CIC is a business with primarily social objectives whose surpluses are principally re-invested for that purpose in the business or in the community, rather than being driven by the need to maximise profit for shareholders and owners.
