I’d like to see more of an emphasis placed on intensive interventions for at risk children in early years. I thought Gordon Brown’s plan for a network of homes for single mothers was unfairly characterised as “gulags for slags” at Labour Party Conference. We need more like this; showing that the state has a role to play to ensure that the most vulnerable are cared for and also to show that we won’t stand by when young children are being mis-treated and abused.
