‘Research, led by the Wave Trust and others, into Adverse Childhood Experiences has found that failing to prioritise early years generates enormous problems for the future in terms of social disruption, inequality, mental and physical health problems, and cost. That’s why for example, I support the Wave Trust’s 70/30 campaign to bring about a 70 per cent reduction in child maltreatment by the year 2030. So investing in and supporting our Health Visitors will be a priority of mine in Government.’
