Our Commissioning toolkit is for anyone with responsibility for commissioning services which promote and strengthen parent-infant relationships

The Commissioning Toolkit

This toolkit was created to provide the information and tools commissioners told us they need when commissioning services to strengthen parent-infant relationships. Research conducted in 2022 by Newcastle University and the Parent-Infant Foundation, funded by the NIHR Applied Research Collaboration North East North Cumbria identified a range of needs and barriers experienced by commissioners seeking to improve support for parent-infant relationships.

This toolkit is not a comprehensive manual, but a curated collection of information, links and signposts to videos, evidence briefings, reports and links to examples of good practice so that you can explore each topic in more depth.

This Commissioning Toolkit expands and updates information in the complementary Development and Implementation Toolkit available here.
