Effective Parenting Programmes: A Review of the Effectiveness of Parenting Programmes for the Parents of Vulnerable Children

This authoritative report by the Families Commission reviews the evidence on the effectiveness of parenting programmes, as a way of reducing the risk of maltreatment of vulnerable children aged 0–6 years. We looked at both national and international evidence to identify parenting programmes that work and those that do not work, including for Māori and Pacific peoples. The report looks at common components of effective programs, including those related to staffing and infrastructure (including staff qualifications, training and support). This report contributes to the body of evidence needed to improve outcomes for vulnerable children, as part of the Government’s Children’s Action Plan.
