Our research aims to determine and promote good practice

We conduct in-depth research projects every single year, alongside our bitesize Ask The Network surveys which are freely available even to non-members.

Our research is designed to provide you with the tools needed to benchmark your own organisation against others in the sector and to support strategic decision making.

Our Members Area provides access to every piece of research plus recordings of past events

As a member of PARN, organisations can have unlimited access to the Members Area meaning all staff can benefit from 'at the fingertips' CPD and research.

What's more, every one can attend our virtual and in-person Special Interest Groups at no additional cost. 

That means one membership can lead to unlimited networking opportunities and encourage personal and organisational development!

The place to come for upskilling both new and experienced staff

Each year PARN runs two training series on the key topics that professional bodies are focusing on in the current landscape.

This includes managing and developing CPD, managing volunteers, membership development, governance and the perfect course for new starters.

Training days are open to all and are based on fresh and relevant research.
