The Parent Centre strives to contribute to a society in which every parent/caregiver is able to raise resilient and well-balanced children so that they are able to develop their full potential and be protected from victimisation and abuse in communities free from violence.


Through our services we have impacted 231 727 parents and caregivers, who care for approximately 624 750 children, and 19 414 professionals and community workers working with families.


Our programmes have been described as “aspirational”. The Parent Centre is endorsed by the World Childhood Foundation and Department of Social Development.
