Building foundations
for life

invest in play (iiP) is an international not-for-profit organisation. Our mission is to support children and their caregivers using practical and compassionate strategies that have been proven to work over many decades. Parent programmes are co-created with local communities in multiple countries to provide culturally appropriate, research-based interventions that are easy to scale. We do this by:  

Creating cost effective and easy-to-scale programmes that work to help children reach their full potential

Using evidence-based strategies that support caregiver-child play, attachment, predictability and consistency

Supporting neurodiverse populations with modules that enhance the core programme

Co-creating culturally relevant materials in each country and community

Engaging in programme evaluation and research in collaboration with international teams

Training professionals to deliver programmes with high quality and fidelity

Supporting sustainable and scalable implementation plans with local iiP supervisors and trainers

Doing things differently
to achieve impact and scale

  • Being a parent is difficult and you are not given training to be one, so I think every parent should have access to these tools

    Father of a 5-year-old and a 10-year-old.
  • "It has been empowering as a parent to learn these strategies. It feels like “Yes, you got this!” and I can see the kids feel the same way. They are more confident”

    Mother of a 4-year-old and a 2-year-old.
  • “Every parent should have a course like this”
    Mother of a 5-year-old.
  • “We have been so thankful for these tools. Yesterday we talked about the fact that we don’t even remember our problems anymore. Things are going so well at home, and our son really benefits from the changes we are making”
    Mother of a 7-year-old.
  • “We have met a lot of people in the system who doubted our abilities as parents. So it has been really nice to meet someone who trusted us and had faith in us from the beginning. Being reassured that we are on the right path, we just have a child who is different.”
    Father of 3-year-old
