In addition to DWP’s £39m Reducing Parental Conflict programme, the government provides funding to other departments that can contribute to a reduction in parental conflict, including a £6m joint DHSC/DWP package of measures to support children living with alcohol-dependent parents, the Public Health Grant to local authorities (£3.13bn in 2019/20) to funds public health services, such as treatment, prevention and reducing harm from alcohol and drug misuse in adults, and the MHCLG led Troubled Families programme (£200m in 2019/20).

Alongside this, over the course of this Parliament, the Government is spending £100 million to support victims and survivors of violence against women and girls.

Decisions on future funding for reducing parental conflict will be made in the round at the next Spending Review.
