Attachment Parenting UK
After running an Attachment parenting International-accredited support group in Devon for the last two years, Michelle set up Attachment Parenting UK as a Community Interest Company.  As a new social enterprise, Michelle would like APUK to reach the many parents feeling isolated in their parenting choices by supporting the formation of new support groups.  As well as being commited to listing and encouraging AP groups nationwide, APUK offers evidence-based resources, parenting tips, free downloadable materials, a bookstore and much more.
