6 march parachute exercise

  1. 1. Parachute exercise: issues and questions identified during the morning  1001 days: importance of development from conception to 2 years – implications for services?  Achieving a balance between targeted and universal provision  Challenge to continuing to improve and develop services with ever decreasing budgets  Conception to two - 1001  Convincing government, both central and local, of the importance of children’s centres and libraries  Delivery with no budget?  Great theory: now how do we make it all work in reality?  How can we improve our work at ages 0-2?  How can we link better with professionals with these links?  How do libraries get involved when there isn't the will from directors / council?  How do we, as deliverers of bookstart, evidence the personal and social capital that bookstart generates?  How does it work at a local level?  If all the various projects ?? literacy were as successful as we sometimes think, why is overall literacy so low in the UK?  If the Mother is going through stress while pregnant, how is the father coping? Eg ‘am I causing my wife to be stressed’?  Informative - how do we do it locally?  Inspired by the passion from Andrea and Margy  Inspiring talks so far: Great quotes for concepts too, eg “chuffedness” and “sweat the assets”  Let's work together more creatively!  Library service, or library buildings?  Perhaps we are missing on some key customers, so libraries need to link ?? on this offer? Joint working  Reinforced my view that deprived communities need high quality services and high quality environment, raising aspirations  Severe reductions in funding: not a climate that promotes innovation: balance between universal and targeted services  Size: how big? range of services: how wide? + Children's centre  The need to engage with expectant parents better  To what extent should services be targeted rather than universal?  We need to buy a ‘yurt’ – gazebos are boring  Where are resources coming from for focus from -0 to 5 for Children's Centres?  Where do we start with taking services forward in this period of great change?  Will parent-infant projects be nation-wide one day?
