Early Intervention


The Department for Education has confirmed that the new early intervention grant, worth about £2bn by 2014/15, will not be ringfenced. The grant will allow local areas to fund activities and services that meet the needs of children, young people and families. The government is yet to decide on the sum of money allocated to the new early intervention grant for each of the next three years. The Department for Education has said that funds for teenage pregnancy, substance and alcohol misuse, young people at risk of becoming Neet or committing anti-social behaviour will be rolled into the early intervention grant. The early intervention grant will be one of nine core grants for local authorities, reduced from more than 90.
