The GLA led an early years roundtable with a specific focus on new approaches to financing early intervention, in partnership with London Councils and Graham Allen's review team. The roundtable identified a strong demand across boroughs for more detailed information about the benefits and risks of social investment. In response the GLA held series of seminars to increase London Boroughs understanding of the opportunities presented by social investment how to access the funding available and the types of intervention best suited to the approach.

The Healthy Schools London programme also engages and encourages parents and the wider community, to make children healthier. More information can be found at http://www.london.gov.uk/priorities/health/focus-issues/healthy-schools-....
