PARENTAL EDUCATION GROWTH SUPPORT CIC
Parental Education Growth Support (PEGS) was founded in 2019 by Michelle John following her experience as a parent of an abusive child. Her experience of how she was treated by statutory agencies and the lack of support for parents in this situation led her to set up PEGS as a CIC to address these issues. PEGS is a young organisation and has achieved an enormous amount, notwithstanding lockdown. Some of the parents access support on a 1:1 basis, group sessions, ad hoc or attend the programmes. To date they are working with four local authorities, two health boards and one police force, and have received national broadcast coverage on the Victoria Derbyshire programme. PEGS is using Fore funding to address areas that will enable the organisation to consolidate and grow, including website development and PEGS staff time.
