Recent government reviews led by Graham Allen MP, Dame Clare Tickell, the Rt Hon
Frank Field MP and Eileen Munro all refer to the growing body of evidence in relation
to the effectiveness of early intervention and prevention services. These types
of services can do more to reduce neglect and abuse than reactive and expensive
C4EO is identifying innovative examples of local practice in relation to services
that provide early help to vulnerable children and families, in order to reduce
the incidences of neglect and abuse. By collecting and sharing proven local practice,
we are seeking to ensure that directors and managers in local authorities, along
with their partners, have up-to-date, accurate evidence of robust local practice
around early help.
