How to Help

There are so many ways to support the work Parents In Need does in getting children the right education.


Of course you can make a donation, you can even dedicate it to someone. Even better, you might consider a regular donation, however small, it all makes a difference.



The fast lane to feeling amazing is achieving a personal challenge and raising money for a great cause at the same time! Whether you’ve always wanted to skydive, run the marathon, shave your head or dance for 10 hours – we will send you our sponsorship pack and support you all the way.

If you want to support us in a less dramatic way – how about a coffee morning, a bake sale, a car boot, every suggestion is a good one!

Corporate sponsorship

Most larger companies have a social responsibility remit to fulfil. There are many ways in which your company may want to support Parents In Need.

Ask your HR department about:
Associated charities – most businesses are associated with a charity, this can be changed regularly or be a long term relationship with mutual promotion. We’d love to be theirs!

Match funding – whether you help with time or money, your company will match what you give to the charity
Volunteer days – get paid to volunteer for Parents In Need for a day instead of going to work
Sponsorship – the company might like to sponsor one of our events or donate something, such as the drinks or goodie bags.

Small businesses

If you own a small business perhaps you’d like to suggest your customers add a small donation at checkout, or you could donate 10% of takings one week, or donate one of your products or services to our auction, raffle or goodie bags. We always promote every business who supports us. Every little helps!
