The 1001 Critical Days

We are delighted to share with you a very important cross-party manifesto highlighting the importance for children of the conception to age two years of life.

A foreword by Sally Davies the Chief Medical Officer explains how the early years of life are a crucial period of change and a key moment for brain development.

Sally goes on to say ''it becomes clearer and clearer how the events that happen to children and babies lead to structural changes that have life-long ramifications. Science is helping us to understand how love and nurture by caring adults is hard wired into the brains of children.We know too that not intervening now will affect not just this generation of children and young people but also the next. Those who suffer multiple adverse childhood events achieve less educationally, earn less, and are less healthy, making it more likely that the cycle of harm is perpetuated,in the following generation''
