EITP aims to transform ways of working through embedding early intervention knowledge and evidence based approaches to commissioning and delivering services for children, young people and families in order to achieve better outcomes.
There are 4 workstreams within EITP.
EITP Workstream 1 aims to equip all parents with the skills needed to give their child the best start in life and will focus on key parenting stages through the Getting Ready for Baby, Getting Ready for Toddler, Getting Ready to Learn; and Play Matters projects.
EITP Workstream 2 aims to support families when problems arise before they need statutory involvement and will focus on the delivery of an integrated regional model of early intervention for these families through the Early Intervention Support Service.
EITP Workstream 3 aims to positively address the impact of adversity on children through a range of projects including Home on Time, Edges, Building Better Futures, Raising the Educational Outcomes of Looked After Children, Early Intervention Child Care (Thrive), Children of Imprisoned Prisoned Parents, and the Family Drug and Alcohol Court (FDAC).
EITP Workstream 4 consists of a Professional Development Project which aims to strengthen the culture of inter-professional working practice, with a particular focus on Adverse Childhood Experiences by supporting professionals to train together as well as embedding commonality in prevention and early intervention approaches.
