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.
