Lessons from Parenting Support

Julia Gault, Head of Family Engagement, DCSF

Presentation at DCSF Conference: The Use of Evidence in Policy Development and Delivery, 9 February 2010

investment to improve parenting
Investment to Improve Parenting
  • Significant growth since 2006 including:
    • Parenting and Family Support part of the core offer for the over 3,000 Sure Start Children’s Centres and over 20,000 schools providing extended services;
    • over 3,500 Parent Support Advisors linked to schools
    • Family Intervention Projects will be operating in every LA by March 2010 – with a target to reach 10,000 parents a year by 2012-13
    • Each LA has two parenting experts able to provide one to one support to improve parenting skills
    • Each LA has funding for a Parenting Early Intervention project (parents of at risk children aged 8-13)
  • Progress on parental confidence and empowerment now tracked at national level through Annual Parent Opinion Survey
workforce skills critical
Workforce Skills Critical
  • Evidence is overwhelming of the power of parenting interventions to change behaviour
  • Skill of the practitioner in delivering the intervention demonstrated to be critical to its effectiveness
  • A small number of strongly evidenced manualised programmes dominated and polarised the national debate
improve practice
Improve Practice

Mechanisms required to:

  • Improve intervention choice
  • Improve fidelity to proven practice
  • Continue to develop understanding of effective practice where there are gaps in current knowledge

Work of the National Academy of Parenting Practitioners addresses all of these

response from the sector
Response from the Sector
  • Commissioning Toolkit has been well received – looking at next phase of development and application of model to other sectors
  • Effective dissemination of learning from current trials
  • Evaluation of practice post-training innovative for a “skill area” rather than a “profession”.
