Working in partnership

A true partnership approach must be taken to enable a child to achieve its full potential. There are many sectors involved in delivering and supporting early years work including health, community and voluntary, local Government and national Government. The early years workforce is thus necessarily broad and encompasses a wide range of professions who must work together to deliver the agenda successfully. Improving planning and delivery for children’s services and the Getting It Right For Every Child agenda also play a key role in developing a common approach.

This outlines the importance of early years services, ensuring strong and clear leadership to embed change and improve outcomes for children and families.
