Keep up to date with latest developments in the field.
Our free monthly briefings are tailored to the family support audience and contain all the latest policy and good practice updates to inform your work. We break down Parliamentary debates and questions, list open consultations, and analyse new reports and resources on all things families, drugs and alcohol.
Each briefing also includes an editorial and a featured issue on a key policy document or research report. To recognise the contribution of charities and community groups in the family support sector we also include resources on charity governance and organisational health.
