Parentkind is a charity that aims to:

Advance education by encouraging the fullest cooperation between home and school, education authorities, central government and all other interested parties and bodies.

Our mission is to tirelessly support and champion all the ways parents can participate in education and have their voices heard. We want to be a powerful force for good in education in the UK that strives to bring homes and schools together for the good of all children and society as a whole.

Parentkind reflects the range of ways in which we aim to support all parents in their child’s education and school life. And indeed embrace the full range of mums, dads, grandparents and carers who carry out this role.


Overall, we want more parents involved and engaged in their child’s education, and in more ways at home and at school. We are working towards a future where this is considered an essential ingredient in the success of our children’s education by society, schools and parents themselves by:

  • Engaging and inspiring individual parents

  • Supporting our PTA and other member associations

  • Championing parents’ role in education and school life to education sector interests and policy makers.
