Getting Early Intervention right is crucial to breaking the inter-generational cycle of many social problems. By improving outcomes for children who have had a difficult start in life we can help them to meet their hopes and ambitions.

Early Intervention policies are a devolved issue in Northern Ireland.

The First Minister has not asked to discuss early intervention polices with my Rt hon Friend the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland or me.
