Reducing parental conflict outcomes framework guide
The Reducing Parental Conflict Outcomes Framework Guide provides step-by-step guidance on applying EIF’s Reducing Parental Conflict (RPC) Outcomes Framework, as well as local area examples and potential workshop content, which can be adapted as required to reflect local context and priorities. The guide is based on learning from projects with local areas to develop an RPC outcomes framework for their local context.
Developing a local RPC outcomes framework can support local areas to improve the understanding of parental conflict and its impact on outcomes for children and young people. It also offers an opportunity to develop understanding amongst local partners of the links between local parental conflict risk factors, local RPC support for families and outcomes for children and young people.
The guide is designed to support local leaders, those responsible for commissioning or delivering local RPC programmes, and RPC coordinators to:
- develop an outcomes framework to improve the understanding of parental conflict and its impact on outcomes for children and young people.
- understand the links between local parental conflict risk factors, local RPC support for families and outcomes for children and young people.
- consider the measurement tools and indicators that can be used to measure the impact of your locally prioritised outcomes.
By using the RPC outcomes framework and adapting it to the local context, key stakeholders can develop local understanding of the relationship between different outcomes, and the links between interparental conflict and outcomes for children relevant to the local context. Informed by an understanding of local needs and RPC support, the outcomes framework can be adapted to focus on specific outcomes of interest based on the local context. It will help measure the impact of RPC support and inform future planning and development.
