The Reducing Parental Conflict programme was announced in April 2017 as part of Improving Lives: Helping Workless Families. In the financial years 2017/18 and 2018/19, DWP spent approximately £21m on reducing parental conflict. Forecast spend for 2019/20 is £14.11m.

Prior to 2017, DWP funded services which provided support for couples to improve their relationships, although these contracts were not specifically focused on parental conflict. £25m was spent on relationship support services between April 2014 and March 2017.
