Following on from the success of the IPP Public Forum in May 2016, and several other initiatives in Jamaica and World Wide, we have decided to use a portion of our space to highlight some of the organisations dedicated to assisting both Parents and Children, and offer links to where you can learn more about these important issues.


The first link is to a page on this site that recaps the details, events and videos from our aforementioned Public Forum:
