Consultation response: First 1,000 Days

February 17th 2017

The Joseph Rowntree Foundation and Bevan Foundation have responded to a consultation by the National Assembly for  Wales’ Children, Young People and Education Committee on the first 1,000 days of a person’s life.

The inquiry is seeking to establish the extent to which Welsh Government policies and programmes support the early parent role, before birth and during the first two years of a child’s life, and how effective these are in supporting children’s emotional and social capabilities and development.

The joint response states that improving financial support for low-income families when children are young would support children’s development and educational prospects. It also calls for more rigorous monitoring of the effectiveness of Flying Start and similar programmes, partly to form part of a robust case for additional funding if programmes are to begin addressing the true scale of need.
