This chapter examines the family policy of New Labour. It begins by studying the claim that the creation in 2003 of a new Ministry for Children, Young People, and Families actually marked the arrival of an explicit, universal, and child-centred family policy. The four key features of this family policy are identified, before the positive and negative characteristics of these themes are discussed.

Keywords: family policy; positive characteristics; negative characteristics
