Early Intervention Foundation Ministerial Statement, 13/03/12 [E/NI/S/W]

The Minister of State, Department for Education, Sarah Teather, made a ministerial statement in the House of Commons on 13 March 2012 announcing the establishment of the Early Intervention Foundation.

The new foundation will have two key roles:

  • providing advice and support to local commissioners on evidence, social finance and payment by results relating to early intervention to assist their own procurement and evaluation; and
  • building the evidence base on what works in early intervention in the UK.
She advised that the Department for Education will shortly issue a public notification in advance of an open and competitive procurement and that the government has secured 3.5 million to fund the foundation for a two-year period. The contract will run for up to two years after which it will become self-financing, and government funding will cease.

For full details see the House of Commons Hansard 13 March 2012 which is available from the UK Parliament website.
