Parents Victoria works towards the advancement of education by supporting and representing parent clubs and parents in Victorian Government schools.  This is done in a number of ways:


  • Provision of information and support via a telephone and email information and referral service
  • Up to date informative website and facebook page
  • Regular Parents Voice email newsletter
  • Parent Club Toolkit
  • Quality resources & information sessions - both face to face and online
  • Policy Manual developed by members and updated annually
  • Annual conference.


  • Provision of support for parents requiring advocacy assistance when dealing with issues involving their children's education.  This may involve providing tools for self-advocacy or facilitating the mediation of the issue between the family and the school and/or the Department of Education
  • Advancing the parent/school partnership - encouraging parent engagement, identifying barriers which may prevent participation and strategies to overcome these barriers
  • Encouraging and supporting parents to volunteer at their child's school and for schools to recognise and value their volunteers.
