Early Outcomes Fund: A perfect fit for Chatta

The Early Outcomes Fund is designed to help local authorities to work together in partnership to improve early language outcomes for 0 to 5 year olds through high quality local services.

If you are an advisor, senior leader or education director and want to find out about Chatta please contact: hello@chatta.co.uk

Our powerful approach is used by early years practitioners and parents and has been designed to ensure progress in essential early language development.

Chatta reaches thousands of parents quickly, regularly and easily.  Above all, it leads to increases in story-telling and high-quality interactions.

Our unique, high-impact, evidence-informed approach is simple, powerful and scalable.

Chatta is used by:

Local Authorities / Schools / Nurseries / Childminders / Parents/carers

We are already working with local authorities in Hull, Liverpool, Rochdale and Sheffield and are looking to connect with colleagues in other regions of the country. Get in touch to find out more: email: hello@chatta.co.uk

Also, if you would like to include Chatta in a bid for the Early Outcomes Fund we will be happy to hear from you.

The fund aims to achieve three key things:

  • to increase leadership focus at local authority level on the key issue of early language
  • to enable local authorities to undertake work to improve their services and how they are delivered
  • to resource evaluation and partnership working amongst local authorities that will spread innovations around the wider system

The DfE are seeking bids from partnerships of 3 or 4 local authorities (with 1 authority in the lead) . They will also accept bids from single authorities. Some authorities will need to have outcomes ‘below the median’ to apply. See the fund guidance for full details of eligibility and how to make a bid.

The application process is now open. It will close on 18 January 2019.
