In March 2016, to co-incide with the launch of our report ‘What works to enhance inter-parental relationships and improve outcomes for children’, we opened an online survey about inter-parental relationships.

The survey was aimed at local authorities and other professionals working with children and families. We wanted to gauge perceptions of the importance of inter-personal relationships, and the degree to which support for this is being offered.

As of 8th April 2016 we had received 143 responses to this survey. An overview of key findings from the survey to date are included below.

How important do you think the quality of the inter-parental relationship is to children’s outcomes (regardless of whether parents live together or apart)?

How much of a priority should supporting the inter-parental relationship be for local early intervention services?

How much of a priority would you say supporting the inter-parental relationship is in your local area?
