This half-day seminar which forms part of the ESRC Social Science Festival will introduce longitudinal data resources available for research into parenting and child well-being.

It is important that policies designed to support parents and improve the quality of parenting have a secure evidence base and are relevant to the circumstances of today’s families. In Britain we are fortunate to have uniquely detailed longitudinal evidence from the cohort studies and other longitudinal studies on the ways that parenting and childhood circumstances can impact on individuals through the life course. These studies also enable us to understand how families and parenting are changing over time.

This seminar will provide an opportunity for researchers from the third sector, practitioners and those influencing policy to learn about the research resources available that can provide evidence to support policy and practice.
