Deadline 8 December 2017 - Commons Select Committee - Evidence-based early-years intervention inquiry launch


The Science and Technology Committee will examine the strength of the evidence linking adverse childhood experiences with long-term negative outcomes, the evidence base for related interventions, whether evidence is being used effectively in policy-making, and the support and oversight for research into this area.

The Committee would welcome written submissions by 8 December 2017 on current research into ‘adverse childhood experiences', the extent of the evidence linking them to negative outcomes in later life and relevant educational, social and health interventions, as well as the extent to which this research is supported and used by Government.
