#17: Jeannie Gordon: The Ministry of Parenting

Dec 21, 2018, 11:38 PM

Jeannie has run the Ministry of Parenting, a community interest company (CIC) over the last 10 years in Essex - providing parenting programmes and training programmes for professionals. Jeannie talks about why she started the business, and why she chose the CIC model rather than a charity. We also talk about what makes a group run well for parents - and discuss things like the importance of having a range of different views in a group. Jeannie talks about where the company is at, 10 years in,; with the Ministry of Parenting facing major funding cuts, and how Jeannie and team are responding to this for next year and beyond.
