I chaired the Disability Advisory Group, currently considering the main areas for commissioning research to provide the basis of a work plan.
I attended the Early Years Taskforce. This is a group led by Angela Constance, Minister for Children and Young People, with representation from CoSLA, the voluntary sector and a variety of stakeholders. The group has a responsibility to progress the early years agenda and provide strategic direction for the Early Years Change Fund. I will be interested to be part of the group and hopefully have an influence on its potential impact.
