Parent Gym

If we want our children to become well-balanced, successful, responsible members of society, we need to get our parenting right.

At the moment, only 16% of pupils who are eligible for free school meals progress to university (Sutton Trust 2010). Great parenting plays a significant part in changing this and so increases social mobility for the next generation.

Parent Gym is a five-week programme proven to increase parents’ skills and confidence and so improve the behaviour and wellbeing of their children. Mind Gym contributes 1% of all income to this important project, and run entirely by a network of volunteer coaches, so it’s completely free to parents and schools.

The programme is available to commercial organisations; ideal for engaging working parents, torn between the responsibilities at home and at work.

All profit is directly channeled back into the expansion of the programme from some of the most deprived areas across London to further afield.

Find out all about the programme, the results so far, or how to volunteer as a Parent Gym Coach on the Parent Gym website.

Or contact us to find out how we can run this for the parents in your organisation.
