Deprivation and risk – The case for early intervention

A new report from Action for Children stressing the importance (and cost effectiveness) of early intervention. Plus a new website which actually does have a lot of useful information on crying, sleeping and how to settle. The name is an acronym, not the colour the unattended baby turns into!
