Social Policies and Distributional Outcomes (SPDO) event: The Conservatives' Record on Early Childhood: Policy, Spending and Outcomes from May 2015 to pre-COVID 2020

Kitty Stewart (CASE) , joint with Mary Reader (CASE)

Kitty Stewart and Mary Reader will present recent work examining the record of the Conservative Government (2015-2020) on services and cash benefits for young children. They examine the aims and goals of the three Conservative administrations, explore policy changes and spending trends, and look at evidence on early child outcomes, including poverty, early child health indicators and the Early Years Foundation Stage Profile. The paper is part of the wider Social Policies and Distributional Outcomes research programme and the authors pay particular attention to what has happened to inequalities in the distribution of spending, access to services, and outcomes. The analysis stops in early 2020, pre-pandemic and lockdown, but the authors will reflect on how policy change during this five year period affected the early years landscape in early 2020, and hence the ability of families and early years services to face the challenges of subsequent months.

COVID-19 and BME groups - How, in 2020, can 'race' still be a social determinant of health?

Nicholas Treloar (The Runnymede Trust)

Since the beginning of the pandemic, Black and Minority Ethnic groups have been at the sharp end of the impact of the virus. With higher infection and mortality rates, BME groups have been hit hardest in economically, socially and fatally. In a year where the killing of George Floyd rocked the world and the Black Lives Matter movement gained increasing traction, it is time to ask why government policies are still failing BME groups. How in 2020 can 'race' still be a social determinant of health?
