The Duchess of Cambridge said: ‘In the past eight years, I have had the privilege of meeting people from all walks of life who have faced all kinds of challenges. What struck me most is that so often the challenges that people face in later life, whether it is mental health, homelessness or family loss, can so often be traced to experiences in their earliest years.
“It has led me to delve deeper into the landscape of the early years and learn more from the experts, the scientists, and the wonderful people who provide services on site. But now it’s time to get the opinions of everyone in society.
“I wanted to hear directly from people in the UK and it’s great to be able to talk to people in Scotland, Northern Ireland, Wales and all over England about their experiences. I want to thank the 200,000 people who filled it in because every response will help us see what society really thinks about raising the next generation. I’m excited to hear more people before it closes on February 21. “

It is designed to bring together the minds of as many people as possible and to recognize that everyone plays a role in ensuring a strong, healthy foundation for the youngest in our society who will positively influence their lifelong results.
