What About The Children? Opinion Survey 2018

Typically a survey is set up to gain a snap-shot of a present-time state of affairs/opinion (Denscombe, 1998, 'The Good University Guide'). This was the intention at What About the Children? when it commissioned a survey to ascertain public opinion on a range of topics with respect to the care of children under three.

Joint meeting of the All Party Parliamentary Group(APPg)  for Children and APPG Conception to Age 2-The First 1001 Days.

The critical first 1,001 days of life has achieved prominence as the subject of two Select Committee inquiries and a new cross-government Ministerial Group. However, despite the increased recognition of the importance of this life-stage, it was given very little mention in the Government's recent green paper on children's mental health. What About The Children? will be attending this joint meeting which provides an opportunity to hear from parliamentarians, Ministers and civil servants about work that is underway in Westminster and Whitehall. This is a timely opportunity to discuss how Government policy can support the social and emotional development of young children in order to give them the best start in life.

 

What About The Children? is one of an alliance of supporters, including MPs and Ministers from the coalition parties and opposition, charities, community groups, academics, think tanks and professional experts working towards the goal to reduce child maltreatment by 70% by the year 2030
