The 1001 Critical Days manifesto highlights the importance of intervening early in the 1001 critical days between conception to age 2 to enhance the outcomes for children.



“There is a growing acknowledgement that those first early years of a child’s life are absolutely crucial. Getting it right as parents with professional help and public resource to support where needed has the potential to make a huge difference to how that child will grow into an adult contributing to society. Putting this approach at the heart of what Government does, across all party divides, has the potential to be life-changing literally which makes the work of the APPG so important”.
