Flying Start programme

Bridgend AM Carwyn Jones has welcomed the news that the Welsh Government’s flagship early years programme, Flying Start, continues to go from strength to strength. Latest statistics reveal that over 37,000 children have benefitted from Flying Start in 2014-15- an increase of a fifth from last year. Flying Start is about giving children a better start and a fairer chance in life.

Carwyn Jones AM said “Doubling the size of our early years programme was a top priority and when the Welsh Government’s Programme for Government was published, the pledge was included in our “Five for a Fairer Future” commitments. In these challenging times, giving children a better start in life and a fairer chance is more important than ever. Thanks to this programme, more children and their families are receiving vital help and support and I am delighted that this programme is making a difference”.
