Against a backdrop of reduced financial resource and rising social need, what is the key to providing effective early help for children, young people and families in 2016 and beyond?

This is an essential national conference for providers and commissioners of services, providing fresh thinking and the latest innovative practice from across the country.

As well as keynote sessions on service reconfiguration, using evidence, and addressing neglect, a wealth of case studies will showcase examples of area-wide early help, measurement and evaluation, and support through children’s centres, youth work and whole-family intervention.

  • Area-wide strategies to build resilience in families and communities
  • Active engagement of families and young people in designing services
  • Effective approaches to integrated working
  • Engaging parents early to prevent and address childhood neglect
  • How the Early Intervention Foundation can support you in your work
  • Putting measurement and evaluation at the core of your work

The conference is designed for:
