Positive Parenting

Volume 448: debated on Wednesday 5 July 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills how much his Department spent on the promotion of positive parenting in the last period for which figures are available; and what this figure represents per child in England. (82016)

The Parenting Fund provided £10.7 million to support 132 projects during the last period—2005-06.

The Parenting Fund supports voluntary and community sector organisations that provide a range of information, advice and guidance—including the promotion of positive parenting, to parents when and if they need it. The fund is not allocated on a per child basis. It would therefore be misleading to provide a general population, per child figure for parenting spend.
