Speakers:
Graham Allen MP, Early intervention Tsar Dame Clare Tickell, Action for Children Polly Toynbee, The Guardian
Chair: Ryan Shorthouse, Researcher, Social Market Foundation
The Coalition Government is keen to look beyond the benefits system at additional measures to alleviate child poverty, and recent reviews from Frank Field and Graham Allen have raised further interest in how more resources could be directed at early intervention measures. But high-value effective interventions – such as Family Nursery Partnerships and Family Intervention Projects – are costly. Can the market and market mechanisms, like social impact bonds and payment by results, help fight child poverty? Speakers:
