Parent Zone are the experts in digital family life. We provide support and information to parents, children and schools, working globally to help families to navigate the internet safely and confidently. We work with parents, schools, governments and businesses to study, understand and address the impact of emerging technologies on young people.
Our mission is to improve outcomes for children in a digital world, so:
Children will be safer online.
Children will be resilient enough to cope with the challenges of the online world.
Children will be educated for a digital future.
What do we do?
We offer information and support in understanding the digital world, to help raise resilient children. Our services include Parent Info, Vodafone Digital Parenting magazine and the Parent Lounge, which gives access to our Parenting in the Digital Age training course.
Parent Zone's Digital Schools Membership supports schools in keeping children safer online, fostering resilience and helping them educate pupils for a digital future. As well as Digital Schools Membership, we deliver the Parent Info service (offering articles and advice for parents, to run free of charge on school websites), and in-school training sessions.
Parent Zone's Digital Resilience Membership supports effective work with parents and families in all communities, covering all the issues amplified by the internet.
Parent Zone works with companies and government departments to develop greater online spaces and services for children. We partner with international businesses, including Vodafone, Google, Telenor and Unilever, as well as the Home Office and the National Crime Agency’s CEOP Command, to deliver this aim. Our Family Champion Award and Family Champion Membership offer opportunities to companies to supporting our goals.
What is Parent Zone?
Parent Zone is an expert consultancy in digital family life, responding to the global challenges of the digital age. We empower young people, parents and professionals to build the skillsets needed to analyse and deal with challenges they face. Looking at issues such as bullying, body image, mental health and extremism, we also act as innovators, developing new research and ideas for global influencers and select corporate partners.
Parent Zone is a social enterprise. To misquote Ginger Rogers, that means we do everything a charity does, except we do it backwards and in high heels. We receive no core funding and any income we generate has to cover the cost of running projects and generate enough profit to run our operation, and the free services we offer to parents. If we do end a year with a surplus, we are required (by virtue of our governing documents) to invest that surplus in projects that support families and parents.
We are a growing team of talented, forward-thinking people from a range of backgrounds, including parenting organisations, children’s charities, education, communications and tech companies.
We are experts in parenting and families, backed up by years of combined professional experience and research.
