FK&Y’s Dr Barbie Clarke, Fatima Younas and George Hanks presented their ‘Helping Parents to Parent’ report for the Social Mobility Commission to the Relationships Alliance Network today. They discussed their findings with the group that represents the relationship support sector and considered the role of parental and relationship support for social mobility and children’s outcomes.
The Relationships Alliance Network, is a collection of 35 third sector organisations who believe in supporting relationships in various ways including counselling, education for young people, family support, marriage prep, support for families of offenders, child contact centres and mediation. It meets regularly to build a movement around supporting good quality relationships to share learning and good practice, facilitate better cross-sector understanding and relationships across organisations, and work together to influence family and relationships policy.
The network includes Relate, Marriage Care, OnePlusOne and the Tavistock Centre for Couple Relationships (TCCR).
