OECD Social, Employment and Migration has a working papers series which is designed to be make available to a wider readership selected labour market, social policy and migration studies prepared for use within the OECD.

The paper “Delivering evidence based services for all vulnerable families” provides a summary on the role of family services in promoting child well-being, and then reviews the policy issues at all levels of the family service delivery systems. At the government level, the paper emphasizes the need to foster collaboration between different government bodies, and to ensure adequate funding for early intervention and preventative services. At service delivery level, the main identified issues include getting a better integration between delivery organisations, building capacities to adapt evidence based interventions, sharing tools to facilitate service implementation, training practitioners with the necessary skills, ensuring that service delivery fits within the local context, and engaging families in services.
