Supporting parents to develop effective parenting practices is an important strategy to tackle inequalities in childhood but major gaps remain in the evidence base for universal parenting programmes, especially for older children and families from disadvantaged and diverse ethnic backgrounds. Professor Richard Watt in collaboration with the Race Equality Foundation and researchers from UCL, Imperial, Cambridge, Bristol and Middlesex universities has recently secured £1.5m funding from the National Institute of Health Research Public Health Programme, to undertake a 4-year multi-centre waiting list control Random Control Trial to evaluate Strengthening Families, Strengthening Communities, a group based parenting intervention for families from ethnic and socially disadvantaged backgrounds.
This project is due to start in January 2019.
