Who we are
The Parents, Families and Allies Network is a UK wide group bringing together parents with experience of children’s social work, their families and allies including social workers, academics, professionals in health and education and others wanting to transform children’s services through better parent participation.
What we do
Parent participation is essential to combat injustice, undo oppression and overcome adversity. We promote participation through support groups, training, research & publications, and campaigns. We enable participation through promoting, developing and supporting parent advocacy and parent advocates.
Being involved in the child protection system is frightening. If you need help go to our website’s help section where you’ll find some services offering help advocacy help and advice. What help there is varies widely depending on where you live, why you are involved and your circumstances. We will soon publish a database giving details by area.
In order for us to continue doing the work that we do, we require funding from outside sources as well as fundraising ourselves. If you are able to donate, it would continue the important work that we already carry out.
