Parents 1st UK

Construction House, Runwell Road, Wickford Essex SS11 7HQ

Led by experienced practitioners, Parents 1st UK is a charity that enables effective volunteering and peer support to flourish during pregnancy, birth and beyond. We want to assist and support the development of effective, evidenced based programmes that firmly embrace community ownership and empowerment.

The evidence that quality peer support contributes to healthier pregnancies, better births and happier babies is overwhelming. The informal, personal, emotional, and practical support that peer support provides is unique. When implemented properly, peer support can take the strain off health care professionals and prevent escalation of need especially if a pregnant woman is vulnerable or has no partner. Communities and volunteers benefit too!

The Parents 1st UK national, online community hub is completely free. Practitioners, volunteers, parents, and funders can connect, share, campaign, network, download a wealth of free resources, and learn from each other. Join the network to enable quality and sustainable perinatal peer support initiatives to flourish based on "what works".

We believe that every parent deserves support and every baby deserves the best possible start in life - join us today over at
