5 Derbyshire County Council Children and Younger Adults Department Links to the Five golden threads C4EO report: Grasping the nettle: Early intervention for Children, Families and Communities 2010

6 1. The Best Start in life: progressively move resources to Early Years to support crucial developmental windows 2. Language for life: Invest in developing speech, language and communication skills to reduce the likelihood of a young person or adult entering mental health and criminal justice systems

7 3. Engaging parents: Ensure the causes of poor childhood experiences are addressed i.e engage parents in services and most particularly hard to reach parents and those in adverse circumstances 4. Knowledge is power: Understand what works. Different issues at different levels of severity require different interventions

8 5. Smarter working, better services: Work together across agencies, disciplines and institutional divisions

21 Innovative Derbyshire practice recognised in the Tickell Review of EYFS The outcome of this work was that children with SLCN or at risk of SLCN were being identified earlier and would be having intervention at an earlier stage. (page 83) …an excellent example of local leadership at its best. p24 Dame Clare

22 Derbyshire County Council Children and Younger Adults Department The Family Reading Strategy Local research found parents want to support their childrens reading but many need more information about HOW Some parents worry that if they try they will mess things up – so they dont Some wanted professionals to do all the learning – so they are waiting Some wanted information about what they could be doing to come from within their own community – because thats who they trust.

23 Derbyshire County Council Children and Younger Adults Department Reading works: pass it on. Someone to model fun with stories and books A reading buddy - why communication matters Reading champions Thriving baby brains – whats on near me Packs of try this at home ideas Whole community on message by tweaking delivery

25 Derbyshire County Council Children and Younger Adults Department Why is this approach to integrated working being effective in Derbyshire? We have a shared passion driven by a group with strategic leadership power We understand that it is by supporting and training our practitioners that they can help parents more effectively We take national agendas and use them as levers by tailoring them to local needs (ECAT, Hello! Campaign) We are supported by our politicians and Senior DCC staff – prioritisation and funding We have developed a simple common language that all can understand

26 Derbyshire County Council Children and Younger Adults Department Why is this approach to integrated working being effective in Derbyshire? Our shared vision is communicated widely There is mutual respect between teams of professionals and we make the best of team skills – a lack of preciousness We recognise that things (including relationships) take time to evolve and embed We use a variety of complementary strategies, including consistent processes and procedures across the County

27 Derbyshire County Council Children and Younger Adults Department What next? Two year intensive roll out of ECAT programme across Derbyshire to 240 most deprived schools and settings Roll out to all Childrens Centres Developing stronger links between Childrens Centres and Health across the whole county to promote early identification of SLC delay so families can be supported by Childrens Centre workers Promotion of use of Child Monitoring Tool and Early Intervention Disc with all schools and settings Working out the strategy for children beyond Early Years
