The First 1000 Days programme

A Public Health Approach to Supporting Parents

This report describes how parents, communities, and wider society can work together to give children in Wales the best start in life.

It highlights the central role parents have in shaping their children’s lives in the first 1000 days and how action to support parents to thrive in their parenting role has the potential to break intergenerational cycles of disadvantage and support the wellbeing of future generations.
