In keeping with the spirit of the Convention on the Rights of the Child, family and parenting support is increasingly recognized as an important part of national social policies and social investment packages aimed at reducing poverty, decreasing inequality and promoting positive parental and child well-being. Over the past 15 to 20 years, different models of family-related services have evolved in different parts of the world. Much less documented is what drives the development of national policies and programmes in low- and middle-income countries and how the provision of family and parenting support impacts on child and adolescent well-being in these contexts. The publication aims to build the evidence base on what kind of family and parenting support works, under what conditions and for whom in order to promote child well-being in different national contexts. Case studies are included from: Belarus, Chile, China, Croatia, England, Jamaica, The Philippines, South Africa, and Sweden.
