We are delighted to welcome Graham Allen as our 3rd Vice Patron.

Graham has had strong links to Early Interventions since 2005, when he took on the executive role of Chair of Nottingham’s Local Strategic Partnership, which he renamed One Nottingham and set it the mission of making Nottingham the first “Early Intervention City”. In 2007 he wrote with Iain Duncan-Smith the seminal “Early Intervention: good parents, great kids, better citizens “underlining his reputation for getting things done by working cross party.

In July 2010, the Prime Minister requested he carry out an Independent Review of Early Intervention for Her Majesty’s Government. He produced two influential reports, the first, "Early Intervention: the next steps" published January 2011, and the second of which, "Early Intervention: Smart Investment, Massive Savings", was published in July 2011. He then set about building and funding a national Early Intervention Foundation to implement the findings of the report.  The EIF opened for business in February 2013 and he Chaired it unpaid. Click for more info

Is it parenting or the financial situation of a family that can break the poverty trap? Parental confidence is the link between the two.
