Parenting Early Intervention Programme: 2nd Interim Report

The Parenting Early Intervention Programme (PEIP) is an initiative to fund all local authorities (LAs) in England to deliver evidence-based parenting programmes. The PEIP Pathfinder (Wave 1; 2006-08) demonstrated the success of three parenting programmes (Triple P, Strengthening Families Strengthening Communities (SFSC), Incredible Years) when these were rolled out in 18 LAs. Findings from the Pathfinder showed that there were substantial improvements in parents’ mental well-being, parenting styles (reductions in over-reactivity and laxness) and improvements in their children’s behaviour as a result of attendance at parenting courses.
