Creating successful family friendly programming

By The Audience Agency

SUMMARY

This guide summarises the contents of a family friendly forum which took place in February 2011 where ideas and learning around family friendly initiatives were shared. You'll find a checklist of things to think about when programming for families, useful family friendly partner organisations and links to case studies from the participating organisations who shared their success stories.
