Family and parenting are at the very heart of English society and through the National Parenting Initiative (NPI) courses we want to come alongside parents and carers and support them. The NPI parenting courses aim to equip parents and carers with practical tools to improve and strengthen their family life and to give them the confidence to pass on good values to their children.

The NPI is the inspiration of a group of parenting professionals and senior church leaders from all over the UK and the goal is to provide parenting courses for every local community throughout the country.  Although this is a church initiative you do not have to go to a church to join and make the most of the courses – courses are designed for parents and carers of any faith or of no faith.  Simply go to our Find a Course page, enter your postcode and find the courses that are running nearest you.

Most courses offered are by one of four respected parenting providers.  To find out more about what is covered and what to expect, visit our Courses page.
