Family and Parenting Institute's annual Family Policy Conference is a focal point for assessing the impact of policy decisions on families over the past year, as well as debating policy priorities for the year ahead. The theme for the 2011 conference was whether the UK was becoming more family friendly. Furthermore, a theme stemming from the roundtable discussions was the danger that policies are producing unintended consequences for families (particularly around welfare reform) or even working counter to other policy initiatives which aim to support family life. This report explores the main conference themes and is aimed at those in government, the voluntary sector and businesses that may be well placed to pick up some of the challenges.
