Society pays later for not giving vulnerable children a good start [theguardian.com]

 

Frank Field (Letters, 28 September and 5 October) and Sebastian Kraemer(Letters, 3 October) are right to highlight the ÂĢ750m cut to services to support vulnerable families. This is indeed a national disgrace, but has gone under the wire partly due to Brexit.

Home-Start and Sure Start were truly progressive initiatives, now thoroughly undermined by these cuts. In 2011, Graham Allen and Iain Duncan Smith published a cross-party governmental report, Early Intervention: Smart Investment, Massive Savings.

This nailed the argument that early intervention to promote secure, happy parent-baby relationships saves millions in terms of the cost of later remediation with regards to school readiness, antisocial behaviour and mental health problems.
