EIF, . (2017) Early Intervention Foundation (Web Page)

Abstract:

Early intervention is about taking action as soon as possible to tackle problems for children and families before they become more difficult to reverse.
We focus on conception to early adulthood because intervention is not just about the early years but also about preventing adolescents and young adults from developing problems.
When a young person is developing and growing up, this is a crucial opportunity to provide them with the skills and support they need. It is much more difficult if they have dropped out of school, become involved with youth crime or developed a serious mental health problem.
Early intervention involves identifying children and families that may be at risk of running into difficulties and providing timely and effective support.
We want every family to develop an intergenerational cycle of positive parenting, relationships and behaviour.
Early intervention is about enhancing the capabilities of every parent to provide a supportive and enriching environment for their children to grow up in. Then the next generation has the best chance to flourish with the skills to engage in positive parenting themselves.
Its purpose is to improve the life chances of children and families and benefit society at large, whilst being cost-effective.

Title Play England
Abstract:

Play England’s vision is for England to be a country where everybody can fully enjoy their right to play throughout their childhood and teenage years, as set out in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child Article 31 and the Charter for Children’s Play.

To achieve this vision, we aim to ensure that:

-All children and young people have the freedom — time, space, permission and opportunity — to play throughout their childhood and teenage years;
-All residential neighbourhoods are child-friendly places where children and young people can regularly play outside; and
-Everyone is aware of the importance of play — outdoors and indoors — as part of children and young people’s daily lives.

Abstract:

Milton Keynes Play Association is one of the longest running charitable organisations in Milton Keynes, with over 40 years’ experience of supporting child-centred play.

We have two core aims:

Making Play Happen – we want all children in Milton Keynes and the surrounding area to have the opportunity to direct their own play in an open and accessible environment.

As a social enterprise we sell goods and services that deliver social impact. We are entrepreneurial and business focussed in order to achieve our core values.

Our values

Everything that Milton Keynes Play Association does is underpinned by four core values:

Being child-centred – valuing the quality of life that children can create for themselves.
Providing advocacy – advocating for self-directed play and learning.
Innovative – being prepared to embrace new play practice and promote leading edge ideas.
Enabling change – effecting change to other people’s practice through our own.

We work with partners who share our value system and are committed to providing high quality play opportunities to children and families across Milton Keynes and surrounding areas.
