Family futures

4th November 2005 at 00:00
A new study, said to be the first of its kind, will track the experiences of 8,000 families as they deal with education, childcare, parenting and health. Parents will be interviewed once a year until their children reach five, with follow-up interviews once a year. The results of the Growing Up in Scotland survey are intended to help shape children's services in the future. It will be carried out initially by the National Centre for Social Research Scotland and Edinburgh University's Centre for Family Relationships.
