Transforming Early Years

The Innovation Unit are working with NESTA on a project that could help transform early years services.

We have really got off to a flying start with the project and are now working in partnership with 6 locality teams – Barking & Dagenham, Bradford, Knowsley, Northamptonshire, Reading, and OnePlusOne and Parents 1st. Over the last few weeks we have run a series of workshops encouraging participants to rethink the challenges faced by their communities, as well as providing tools and techniques to support them to rethink who they are serving. You can click here to view our ‘journey’ or methodology for the project.

It is an exciting piece of work for the Innovation Unit as it will allow us to test and refine the model that we have built through the Radical Efficiency research and most importantly, help to have a real, positive impact on the lives of families with very young children. We are also confident it will teach us much more about the conditions needed for such ambitious change to be realised nationally.

If you would like to be kept up to date with the project and what we are learning then please click here to join our community of interest. If you are interested in discussing how we could help you develop your own radical solution to the public service challenges you face, then please click here to contact Sarah Gillinson, Head of Radical Efficiency.
