This webcast is both relevant as well as timely given the current coalition government’s recognition of the importance of good parenting for children’s outcomes. A number of independent reviews have been commissioned, for example, Allen Review, Field Review and Munro Review. These point to a growing body of evidence, indicating that when evidence-based interventions are implemented at scale with families that need them, significant population-wide benefits can be achieved. These benefits include considerable reductions in school failure, youth crime, adolescent drug and alcohol misuse and child maltreatment.
