The Parenthood's vision is to help the community remove the barriers that prevent parents from raising healthy, thriving children.
We're building a big and influential group of parents, carers and supporters to advocate and lobby governments and business for family-friendly workplaces, the best quality early learning and care, well resourced schools and a community that values children.
Having a baby is a time of joy. But it can also be a very challenging time. Most of the challenges are unexpected, especially for first time parents.
Every parent wants healthy, thriving children. We know what we need to do give our kids the best start in life.
But sometimes we all need support through the tough times.
And, sometimes there are big barriers that make it really difficult to help our children meet their milestones.
The Parenthood works to remove those barriers. By working together, we can change things to make sure the support is there when parents need it and to make sure every child has the opportunity to thrive.
Because ultimately, when children thrive, our whole community thrives.
