About the Family Policy Unit
The Centre for Social Justice was one of the first think tanks to set out the extent of family breakdown in our poorest communities and develop policy recommendations to reverse family breakdown. The Family Policy Unit has been established within the Centre for Social Justice to further our political engagement and research in this area and provide the policy makers with practical recommendations to reduce family breakdown in our poorest communities.
Despite the very significant body of research evidence from the CSJ and elsewhere around the importance of healthy and stable relationships, there is still a reluctance from Government to embrace the agenda fully. The Unit seeks to change the political narrative around family breakdown by demonstrating why stronger families are an important part of improving the life chances of children from our poorest households.
