APPG Conception to Age 2: first 1001 days

All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) Conception to Age 2
Fri 11 Dec 2015

We are lucky enough to facilitate the 1001 Critical Days Campaign nationally alongside being a joint secretariat with the WAVE Trust for the All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) Conception to Age 2 as our policy arm. The APPG group chaired by Tim Loughton MP was established to promote a holistic approach to the antenatal and postnatal period, specifically with regards to the early years and infant mental health; to hold evidence-based inquiries into best practice for the 1001 critical days to help policymakers make informed decisions on provision in this period; and to uphold cross-party consensus for this age group.

In the last Parliament we held a number of enquiries including a perrinatal enquiry which brought together the science and policy of the conception to age two period and to launch a report before the General Election 2015. We launched the 'Building Great Britons' report at Speaker's House in Parliament that was attended by over 150 people including the Speaker of the House of Commons.
