Science and Technology committee highlights, 17th April 2018

This session was on early years intervention, which covers various educational and support systems for young children who have been victims of child abuse and/or neglect.

The Science and Technology Committee is examining the strength of the evidence linking adverse childhood experiences with long-term negative outcomes, the evidence base for related interventions, whether evidence is being used effectively in policy-making, and the support and oversight for research into this area.

Darren put questions to witnesses Dr Shirley Woods-Gallagher, Special Advisor on School Readiness, and Alan Harding, Chief Economic Adviser, Greater Manchester Combined Authority, Dr Caroline White, Head, Children and Parents Service Early Intervention, and Martin Pratt, Chair, Association of London Directors of Children’s Services.
