The objectives are to:

  • understand how the Bridgend Public Services Board, representing key partners, is committed to improving outcomes and reducing inequalities for all children in the population;
  • develop a shared understanding of why the first 1000 days of life are so important, including which factors have the greatest impact on outcomes during this time;
  • share the findings of the Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) research in Wales, how they impact on child development during the first 1000 days, and on health outcomes throughout life;
  • develop a detailed understanding of what we currently do as a system to support children and parents during the first 1000 days of life, including using case studies to illustrate our current collective response to different scenarios;
  • agree together what opportunities there might be for system improvements, in the context of what we know will make the greatest difference to outcomes.
