Pregnancy Centres Network was set up in 2014 in response to a request from representatives of numerous independent pregnancy centres operating with a Christian ethos. Interest has grown, and we are currently in touch with more than 80 centres across the UK.
We exist to encourage pregnancy centres in their work of non-directive support for those facing unplanned pregnancy or struggling with pregnancy/child loss concerns, exercised with care and compassion based on Christian principles. The PCN vision is to foster a national provision of holistic, professional caring support offered within a confidential environment. We also support centres as they engage in preventative work educating young people in schools and other settings.
PCN recognises the strength of centres operating with autonomy, knowing and meeting the needs of their local community. Therefore, centres are not affiliated to PCN. As a non-campaigning organisation which is client-focussed, PCN will not normally comment on debates concerning abortion in the public arena.
Through the work of PCN, we aim to achieve the following:
Co-ordinating information between local centres and regions
Providing encouragement to centre leaders and their teams
Building common resources for the benefit of local centres
Encouraging best practice in the centres
