Abstract

In this review I will map out social trends and unravel the development of family and relationship support policies in England and Wales between 1997 and 2011. I aim to make sense of specific shifts by analysing the interplay between governments, government reports and Green Papers, policy making and state spending on support policies. To do this I critically engage with social policy, the development of policy making and implementation of government directives.
