Abstract or Description

This paper examines processes and outcomes arising from an illuminative evaluation of a Leonardo da Vinci-funded project designed to develop a transnational network in Europe for practitioners working with parents. The project was successful in enabling information to be shared between the partners, in supporting individual partners to implement their own specific goals and in publicising the needs of the sector more widely. It was less successful in establishing common frameworks for practice in this area.
