This chapter concludes the book, providing perspectives on social policies and families. It notes that the Centre for Research on Families and Relationships (CRFR) is committed to building links between academic research, policy and practice. The theme of boundaries offers one way to capture the fluidity of ‘families and relationships’ and the concept of boundary work to embed such conceptualisations within the practical realities of ‘doing family and relationships’, family practices and practices of intimacy and friendship. The chapter also discusses boundaries as a conceptual device, boundaries and boundary work in a policy context.

Keywords:   boundary work, family life, child support, CRFR, friendship
