Early intervention is an increasingly prominent force across health, education, policing and many other policy areas concerned with improving the lives of children and young people and the effectiveness of our public services. As the UK evidence base grows, how will policymakers and decision-makers respond?

The Early Intervention Foundation – a member of the evidence-focused What Works network – is holding its annual conference in London in May, providing a rare opportunity to get national policymakers, local leaders and frontline practitioners all together in the same room to discuss the challenges and opportunities of this rapidly developing agenda.

The day-long programme will directly address several key questions for decision-makers and actors on the local level – from making a difference for vulnerable children, to integrating services, to why and how evidence matters to commissioning and monitoring. Book your place now.
