Thank you to all those who attended and supported our Early Years, Parenting and Family Relationships Conference 2016!
This conference, funded by Public Health England, brought together around 100 commissioners and leads across services for children and families, to engage with the latest evidence around ‘What Works’ for early years, parenting and family relationships and to consider the implications of this evidence for their work.
The Early Intervention Foundation team were joined by experts from local government, academia and the health and social care, to present high quality evidence, including EIF’s new ‘Foundations for Life’ and ‘Inter-Parental Relationships’ reports, and practical examples to inspire and generate new thinking around commissioning and decision making across children’s and families services.
Jane Ellison MP, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Public Health delivered the keynote speech describing why early intervention is at the heart of the governments agenda.
Authors Professor Leon Feinstein and Dr Kirsten Asmussen showcased EIF’s new report, Foundations for Life: What works to support parent child interaction in the early years – see video below.
Workshops were at the heart of this conference focusing on understanding the evidence and applying evidence in practice. For further information on the content of these sessions, please see the agenda and PowerPoint presentations from the conference day.
We’d like to thank all our delegates, speakers, and chairs, and our partner Public Health England for supporting this event.
