We are The Greater Manchester Parenting Collective CIC. We were started by three friends who have all had lived experience of the challenges of conceiving, pregnancy, birth, feeding and parenting. We know it’s not easy! Using that knowledge and experience, we decided that providing parenting support in Manchester to families, from pregnancy through birth and beyond, was our life’s calling and, now, we love getting to work every day! We’re so passionate about inclusion and we know that diversity is our strength. The beauty of pregnancy and birth is something that crosses all borders, boundaries and cultures, so we’re all working together to help new families have the best start to their new lives that they can.
We support our local communities around the city, by running Sling library support sessions, Fourth Trimester support groups, private consultation, workshops, fundraising and signposting for new/vulnerable families, whilst working closely with local health authorities and groups. We also offer training for professionals who are learning how to provide parenting support, in Manchester and beyond.
In the past, parental support for new families has been reserved for only the privileged few. We’re here to change that, as a majority black-owned business, providing our parenting support in Manchester for people from all backgrounds. Caring for your new child is something that everyone needs a helping hand with, and we’re so excited to help you on your journey! It’s always scary, starting something so new and so strange, but we’re here to take your hand and guide you along the way.
Come along and learn about how to safely and comfortably carry your child. We’ll equip you with the skills to keep your little one close and help deepen the bond between you.
Private 1:1 Consultation
A FREE-to-attend support group for new parents/carers, babies and families as a whole, for the first six weeks after your special new one has joined the family. You’re probably wondering about the name – of course, yes there’s plenty of cake too!
Signposting and support
We’re always excited to get involved with helping out the local community. As well as giving people parenting support in Manchester, we also do a bit of fundraising for local groups across the Greater Manchester Boroughs – We’re currently so proud to be working with the Wood Street Mission’s super popular Christmas Appeal, helping them to collect new toys and gifts for kids from age 0-14. Got any spare presents under the bed with no-one to give them to? You could make a child very happy this Christmas!
Get involved and follow our fundraiser!
