A transformational framework to improve the life chances of Scotland’s children and tackle inequalities by targeting the early years was launched by the Scottish Government and COSLA last week.
The Early Years Framework, developed in collaboration with independent experts during the past nine months, sets out a radical shift away from the culture of crisis management to early intervention. It also aims to build greater resilience within families and communities.
