Relationships Foundation is urging British politicians and policy makers to set out a Family Deal, formally spelling out what government needs and expects from families if goals are to be achieved, especially in the tough times we are going through. In turn the government must set out a clear strategy for supporting families. The deal should be at the heart of the understanding of rights and responsibilities between the government and the general public. It needs to be clearly stated and easily understood. It needs to be written into departmental plans. Above all, it needs political leaders who will do more than pay lip service to family policy.
It’s time for the Family Day Bill!
