MHCLG follows the guidance set out by the Department for Work and Pensions in relation to application of the Family Test.

In addition, my Department has implemented its own measures to ensure policy officials are aware of their Family Test obligations, with training provided to raise awareness. There is a clear expectation and practice within MHCLG that the Family Test is applied to relevant policies at each stage of the policy making process.
