Early intervention

Our experience at Reach Academy has confirmed the fundamental significance of intervening early – both early in the life course, and early in the development of issues or problems. The early identification of problems and the early implementation of interventions significantly increase the likelihood of impact. The principle of early intervention guides Reach Children’s Hub’s work: it motivates the focus on the 0-5 stage, and the design of its programmes to support children, young people and families before they reach crisis, and beneath the thresholds of statutory intervention.

This video shows an example of the work done by the Hub and the importance of intervening early.
