Anne Houston, chief executive of Children 1st said, 'We know from our work with families the difference that can be made with the right information and support at the right time.

The publication of this report and the online resource section marks the start of a journey to deliver on the commitments in the National Parenting Strategy. We look forward to working with the Scottish Government and other key stakeholders on that journey.'
