What is Parent Info?

Parent Info is a website for parents, covering all of the issues amplified by the internet. Its newsfeed function enables schools and family-focused organisations to host and share expert advice and information through their own websites.

Parent Info User Interview Report from London Connected Learning Centre (CLC)

"If you think of something, it’s there!" 

Parent Info user

Before our big website redesign last summer, we conducted some research to find out more about the impact of Parent Info. This piece of work was undertaken by the London Connected Learning Centre (CLC) who have lots of experience supporting schools with online safety advice.

We wanted to know what users thought of Parent Info content, understand more about their overall experience and how they utilise the free service to share important advice with families.

Overall, the response was great. Parent Info is widely accepted as a ‘trusted and valued’ resource with many users saying they returned to the service, again and again, to help meet their needs and statutory obligations. It’s used in many different ways with some users sharing the newsfeed on their websites and others sharing articles directly. In general, users felt that the articles were accessible, up to date and concise - covering a variety of important issues.

The CLC also interviewed a number of non-users - most of whom hadn’t yet heard of Parent Info. All said they would find it a useful free service and were likely to sign up.

Since the consultation, we’ve launched a new site and we’ll be following up on the usability in the near future.

The full insight report is well worth a read - you can find it here.
