Using the Reducing Parental Conflict Planning Tool: Key findings from local areas
This short briefing summarises the key findings from the analysis of self-assessment data from 130 local areas which used the Reducing Parental Conflict Planning Tool to develop their local plans to reduce the impact of parental conflict on children.
Tackling parental conflict requires effective local arrangements for strategy and planning, leading change, delivering effective single- and multi-agency working, and evaluating progress. The Reducing Parental Conflict (RPC) Planning Tool is designed to guide local areas in developing local arrangements to reduce the impact of parental conflict on children.
This briefing summarises the key findings of the analysis of planning tool data collected from 130 local areas in 2021.
The briefing highlights the progress local areas are making, challenges faced in developing their RPC programmes, and common next steps that local areas were taking to move forward across the four dimensions outlined in the planning tool. It also spotlights three common enablers for making progress, and provides tips for completing the planning tool.
