Family policy: the Mods and Rockers
The chapter briefly reviews the nature of the similarities and differences between New Labour and Coalition governments’ family policies, before going on to consider the source and features of Coalition Mod and Rocker approaches to families and to explore their universalist and targeted nature. In particular we do this through consideration of, firstly, the treatment of marriage and stability in and for families, and secondly, two key forms of social investment in families: early intervention so as prevent poverty and disadvantage in the next generation, and interventions to turn around dysfunctional families who must be made to help themselves.

Abstract

The chapter briefly reviews the nature of the similarities and differences between New Labour and Coalition governments’ family policies, before going on to consider the source and features of Coalition Mod and Rocker approaches to families and to explore their universalist and targeted nature. In particular we do this through consideration of, firstly, the treatment of marriage and stability in and for families, and secondly, two key forms of social investment in families: early intervention so as prevent poverty and disadvantage in the next generation, and interventions to turn around dysfunctional families who must be made to help themselves.
