A joint report with the Centre for Social Justice on Early Intervention policies was launched by senior Labour and Conservative politicians. They paint an apocalyptic vision of worsening violent crime and social disorder unless radical steps are taken early in the lives of young children to halt the slide to delinquency. In the report former Government Minister Graham Allen and former Conservative leader Iain Duncan Smith highlight the importance of new Early Intervention programmes targeted at boosting the life chances of deprived children aged 0 to 3 and call for cross-party consensus on intervening early.
