Abstract: This article highlights the work of the Commission on the Family that the Irish government entrusted with the task of producing comprehensive and in-depth analysis of the issues affecting families in Ireland; and with making wide-ranging recommendations across several different policy areas. The point is to make a positive contribution to developing coherent, progressive and effective policies for families. The article is a celebration of processes of consultation and reflection that goes on to review some of the first results of implementation. It also includes boxes about two successful Foundation-supported projects. These illustrate effective work to benefit young children, their families and their communities: the Community Mothers Programme; and the Together Family Centre.
