Her Majesty's Government whether it is their policy to continue with the plans to address parental conflict in workless families set out in Improving Lives: Helping Workless Families, published in April.
17 July 2017
Improving Lives: Helping Workless Families set out our plans to tackle the root causes of disadvantage, with a focus on workless families. As part of this approach, we announced an innovative new programme of support to help parents, whether they are together or separated, to reduce conflict. This is based on the most recent evidence, which tells us that children who are exposed to frequent, intense and poorly resolved conflict are at risk of experiencing poorer long term outcomes. Plans are currently underway to develop this support, and more details of this will be announced in due course.
