Tony Blair’s New Labour government has had a momentous impact on British family policy over the past fifteen years. It aimed to reduce poverty, improve child outcomes, and break the cycle of deprivation. InA Revolution in Family Policy, social policy analyst Clem Henricson asks whether or not these broad aspirations for general social betterment have been met. Raising important questions about the feasibility of the government’s programs, she proposes narrowing the scope of the programs to more realistic levels by focusing solely on family well-being.
