Supporting parents as a means of improving child outcomes is central to many wide-ranging government policy initiatives of recent years. However, despite enormous advances in policy and legislation, relatively little is known about what affects a key part of delivering services - the 'consultation' between parents and practitioners. This report by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation set out to explore how practitioners ‘assess’ parenting and parenting support needs and how such assessment may be affected by the practitioner’s own experience, ethnicity, social class, disability, gender and family diversity.
