The family is going to be put at the centre of Government policy, David Cameron will announce today.
In a speech, the Prime Minister will set out plans for every policy to have to pass a "family friendly" test from October.
He is expected to say that too often parents and children are overlooked or left worse off by reforms.
A doubling of taxpayer funding for relationship counselling through Relate to £19.5 million will also be announced.
The speech comes ahead of a major extension of the Government's programme to tackle troubled families, set up in the wake of the 2011 London riots.
