About us

PTA+ is a Community Inspired initiative. We are dedicated to supporting, inspiring and empowering PTAs to maximise their potential.

Community Inspired Ltd was set up in October 2002 with the goal to develop child safety services at venues throughout the UK and whilst on holiday abroad.  Working with a number of leading organisations, we extended our services to bring together families, schools and the wider community. 

Community Inspired is a social enterprise. No idea what that is? A social enterprise is a business that trades with the primary objective of supporting society - in our case that's PTAs, families and schools. Profits are reinvested for the benefit of the communities we support.

We began publishing PTA Magazine in January 2011, completely revamping and reinvigorating this exciting market. From April 2012, PTA+ Magazine was born, with the same editor at the helm, providing the topical parenting features and fundraising inspiration that our readers rely on to help inform, engage and empower them.

Here at Community Inspired we pride ourselves on the provision of excellent information and services. We work with the leading bodies in each sector and with technology partners who work to the highest standards of security and codes of practice.

In addition to the website and Magazine we have a strong and vibrant and social media presence where alongside our Facebook pages, Twitter and LinkedIn accounts we now provide PTA County Facebook Groups.    

County PTA Groups have been established as part of our commitment to provide free help and support to all PTAs. Each group is run by local PTAs in the knowledge that they have the specialist help and support from PTA+, if required.  Through these groups PTAs can share ideas and resources, recommend local suppliers and develop stronger communities.
