Early years services

Action for Children has published a report looking at the provision of early years services and parenting support in England. A survey was conducted with 2,000 parents about their experiences accessing parental support in the early years. Findings include: 66% of parents wanted more high quality parenting support; and 35% of parents in the lowest household income group faced difficulty in accessing support. The report calls for the government to address issues around unequal access between regions and demographic groups and to invest in improving access.
