F1001D Research Report - Working for Babies: Lockdown Lessons from Local Systems

Most importantly, the report seeks to ensure that lessons are learned for the future of service provision for this age group. It provides further evidence of the importance of many things that the Movement campaigns for such as clear leadership, a focus on babies’ needs, and a joined-up response.
