Spending cuts, stagnating wages and increased living costs put families under huge pressure. But across England, our programmes help give children the best possible start in life.
Our Families Connect programme empowers parents to create a supportive home learning environment.
We're also developing our approach for Children's Communities, which brings together key agencies in deprived areas, ensuring children don't fall behind.
And we're empowering local agencies to create a support chain for our poorest children, no matter their stage of their development.
