Recommendation ID

Interventions with fathers and male carers:- What interventions are effective and cost effective when working with fathers and male carers to improve their parenting in families where children are being, or have been, abused or neglected?

Any explanatory notes
(if applicable)

Why this is important- There is a lack of research evidence from the UK showing what interventions are effective to improve fathers' and male carers' parenting in families where children are being, or have been, abused or neglected. Most studies reviewed for this guideline, both from the UK and elsewhere, focused on female carers. Studies are needed to show what interventions and practices are effective in engaging fathers and male carers, and improving their parenting if needed.
