WG3: Quality Standards and Evidence-based Programmes

  • WG3 aspires to provide directions for future developments on European and national levels, with regard to family support provision, research/evaluation and policy.
  • Through collaboration on tasks and discussions, WG3 members seek for (new) ways to strengthen the effects of programmes to support parents and families and enhance children’s wellbeing and development.
  • A comprehensive picture of the family support programmes and the extent to which the Evidence-Based Practice (EBP) approach is established in policy and practice levels in European countries is being generated.
  • The ultimate purpose is  to facilitate further development of EBP (in accordance with the emerging European Quality standards for family support), and stimulate supportive policies at European and national levels.
