How can I start to take action?

There is a need to increase the availability of relationship support provision in the UK, and to embed a focus on reducing parental conflict in local systems and services. This is currently being addressed as part of the national Reducing Parental Conflict Programme, but as a new policy area, local areas need support on where to start. In this section we provide a range of tools and resources that can help.
