Our relationship based programmes are culturally adaptable, flexible to local needs and support positive change in a variety of different contexts around the world.
Parenting programmes are game changers for multiple SDG targets and children’s rights… We need a public health approach to parenting.
– Ben Perks (Head of Campaigns and Advocacy, UNICEF)
Mellow Parenting was born in Scotland, where the first groups were delivered in the 1990s. We now work nationally supporting practitioners from the Highlands to the Lowlands.
Since the mid-1990s, we have supported practitioners across a number of English, Welsh and Irish local authorities as well as within: NHS, education, voluntary organisations and Health Trust to deliver Mellow groups to parents and children in their local communities.

Republic of Ireland
In the Republic of Ireland, we have trained and supported practitioners from Dublin to Limerick and in-between to deliver our Mellow Bumps and Dads-to-Be groups. We are working closely with a number of Health Trusts, hospitals and voluntary organisations to deliver Mellow groups to parents and children in their local communities.

Working with Partnership for Every Child in Moldova we have trained social care practitioners across the country to deliver off and online groups. The groups have been able to reach families who experience poverty and are often in isolated rural situations, lacking support. In recent times our practitioners have been able to support displaced families affected by the war in Ukraine.
In partnership with UNICEF and local organisations, we have trained teachers and parenting helpline practitioners to deliver online and offline groups.
Our partner Sunflower NGO has used our online programmes to reach and support pregnant women and families with young children across Turkey.
Mellow Parenting are excited to support Utsmaya, our partners in India, to launch Mellow Bumps in Bangalore.
Our programmes have been delivered in many other countries around the world. These include: Russia, Germany, Australia, and Iceland.
