This was an early creation of the then new Labour government in 1999. It was established as an independent charity, with financial backing from the government and the Joseph Rowntree Foundation, to support parents in bringing up their children, to promote the wellbeing of families, and to make society more family-friendly.
The NFPI aims to be a voice for families to government, policy makers and media. It works to raise awareness about the importance of relationships; and to change the climate of opinion so that people find it easier to find help.
