A £2.7 million fund to increase support for disadvantaged families at risk of parental conflict has been announced by the Minister for Family Support, Housing and Child Maintenance, Justin Tomlinson.

The fund consists of two separate strands:

(a) Support for Disadvantaged Families (£1.1 million available) to test and learn from new or emerging approaches to supporting disadvantaged families with an increased risk of parental conflict e.g. those dealing with complex and interconnected issues such as debt, mental health issues and poverty.

(b) Digital Support (£1.6 million available) for projects that help parents find digital support. It will target parents with low digital skills and who live in low income and workless households.

Potential applicants can register their interest from 11 January 2019 and apply between 21 January and 15 February 2019.

More information is available on the Reducing Parental Conflict Challenge Fund website.
