Dutch local authorities have been responsible for youth care schemes and parental help in child-raising. ZonMw contributes towards improving the quality of youth care in several ways. We support effect research to find out what works and what does not; we stimulate the dissemination of new knowledge to professionals, municipalities, and training organisations; and we invest in an effective knowledge infrastructure, so that practice, research, education and policy can better stimulate and inform each other.
The input provided by parents and young people themselves is seen as an important part of this process.
