How does providing support for young families affect children’s well-being?
Dr Alison Parkes from the MRC/CSO Social and Public Health Sciences Unit at the University of Glasgow highlights findings from a recent study using Growing Up in Scotland data to explore the impact of support for parents on children’s well-being. The study underlines the importance of good social support networks for all families with young children, as well as the need to ensure good access to health and welfare services through building greater parental awareness and trust.
