Parent Infant Partnership (PIP) UK is a national charity (Registered Charity No: 1152802) and umbrella organisation to a network of PIPs who provide specialist clinical services to infants and their families.
PIP UK was founded in 2012 by Andrea Leadsom MP alongside the 1001 Critical Days Manifesto to realise a vision to give every baby the best possible start in life.
The need for PIP services across all areas of the UK is acute. They provide an essential component to a preventative strategy for better mental health outcomes across the lifespan. International research clearly demonstrates the case for investing early into human potential. Currently only 1% of the Children and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAHMS) budget is spent on the under 2s, and none at all on bumps.

There are currently 7 PIPs delivering Parent Infant Services across the UK:
