The family is at the heart of Every Child Matters (ECM) and necessarily overlaps with content in other chapters (especially Chapters 4, 5, 7 and 10). To avoid duplication, this chapter is confined to societal frameworks of the family and the two main arenas where state and family interconnect: parenting jurisdiction, and provision of family services. An in-depth examination of Family Intervention Projects (FIPs) provides a practice example of how ECM and integrated children’s services are seen through the family lens.
