This report highlights issues for 0-2s for the attention of two main groups: service commissioners and decision-makers. For these two key groups influencing services for young children and families, significant messages about effective parenting and evidenced practice with 0-2s are set out in supporting chapters 1 and 3. Other, more specific, messages are summarised in supporting chapter 2, which aims to influence those responsible for developing the future workforce to intervene early and effectively in families who have (or are expecting) really young children, and who need help.
