The EIF team were joined by experts from local government, academia and health and social care, to present high-quality evidence 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 Leon Feinstein and Kirsten Asmussen showcased EIF’s new report, Foundations for Life: What works to support parent-child interaction in the early years.
Workshops focused on understanding the evidence and applying evidence in practice.
