creating a better future for the UK - one baby at a time

PIP UK facilitates the relaunch of the 1001 Critical Days Manifesto in Parliament

The charity Parent Infant Partnership (PIP) UK welcomes the re-launch of the cross-party manifesto 1001 Critical Days: conception to age 2 today in Parliament, which highlights the importance of acting early to enhance the outcomes for children. We are lucky enough to facilitate the 1001 Critical Days Campaign nationally alongside being a joint secretariat with the WAVE Trust for the All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) Conception to Age 2 as our policy arm.

The APPG group was established to promote a holistic approach to the antenatal and postnatal period, specifically with regards to the early years and infant mental health; to hold evidence-based inquiries into best practice for the 1001 critical days to help policymakers make informed decisions on provision in this period; and to uphold cross-party consensus for this age group.
