The deadline for the survey is 5pm on Friday 3rd July 2020. Only online submission via this link will be accepted
EIF is reviewing how local authorities and intervention developers/providers are adapting their parental conflict support for families using virtual, digital or remote methods, as a result of COVID-19 and the lockdown.
This survey is addressed to local authorities and should be completed by the SPOC (Single Point of Contact) for the RPC Programme, or a colleague who has a good overview of the local authority’s strategic plans for reducing parental conflict and improving outcomes for children. Please only submit one entry only per local authority. If you are working for an intervention developer/provider with a focus on supporting interparental relationships, please complete this bespoke survey

‘Virtual and digital services’ (V&D) is a deliberately broad term which includes, but is not limited to, digital services delivered via the Internet. EIF defines a virtual and digital service as one which can be delivered remotely without any in-person interaction between provider and participant. This includes using mediums such as telephones, video conferencing, apps, websites and self-directed activities or worksheets amongst others.

Please note that this survey is distinct from DWP’s evaluation of the RPC Programme, which is ongoing. You may be invited to take part in a short survey about your involvement with the programme and engagement with the parental conflict agenda in the next few months. We’d encourage you to take part in both surveys, to help build the evidence base around this particularly critical issue.
We expect the survey to take around 10 minutes to complete.

Glossary of terms used in the survey

Parental conflict: Destructive conflict that can range from intense quarrels to verbal or physical aggression, including conflicts that are about or involve the children, the ‘silent’ treatment, lack of respect and emotional control, and a lack of resolution. Domestic abuse is outside the scope of the RPC Programme and this survey.

Local area: This includes both your local authority and its key partners (e.g. the police, schools, and youth offending teams) unless the question specifically refers to your local authority.

RPC intervention: This includes any manualised intervention aimed at reducing parental conflict, improving the quality of the interparental relationship, and improving outcomes for children.
