With our sincere thanks to Land Securities for kindly hosting this event.



As a respected figure in the sector, it is our great pleasure to cordially invite you to our 4th Annual Margaret Horn Lecture, on the evening of Social Enterprise Day, Thursday 18 November 2010, at Portland House.

In light of the recent October Spending Review, the Coalition's vision for a Big Society and the ever more critical need for continued early intervention, we are delighted to announce that Graham Allen MP, recently appointed Chair of the National Independent Review into Early Intervention, will present this year's keynote speech.

Promising to be both informative and inspiring, Graham will talk about his experiences in his constituency of Nottingham along with his joint report, published with the Rt Hon Iain Duncan Smith MP, 'Early Intervention: Good Parents, Great Kids, Better Citizens'.  This will be followed by an open question and answer session with a panel of similarly distinguished guests.



Event outline and why you need to attend

The Margaret Horn Lecture is an annual event held by the London Early Years Foundation to debate the latest issues, developments and opportunities considered crucial to building a better future for London's children, families and communities.

This year we ask the question: has anyone saved a place at the Big Society table for Early Intervention - and does a combination of social enterprise and the community childcare model offer one possible way to successfully bring together these two key concepts.

This event will offer you the opportunity to hear some of the latest thinking from a range of experts, share your own ideas, whilst networking with existing and new contacts.  We hope you will leave inspired and better equipped to make a difference in your own local community.

London Early Years Foundation

LEYF is the UK’s most well-known and respected childcare social enterprise, providing day care and parenting support to a diverse mix of families in 24 community, workplace and Children’s Centre nurseries across six London boroughs.

We have developed a unique social business model that uses sustainable income from our nurseries in more affluent areas to actively target the heart of some of the capital’s most deprived communities; in doing so, we make high quality day care available to families that have traditionally been unable to reach or afford it, and typically need it most of all.

We are just as committed to helping disadvantaged young adults realise their own potential. Thanks to our mentor-based Early Years apprenticeship programme, such individuals are given the chance to develop a range of vocational and interpersonal skills, with a professional qualification and in most cases a job at the end of it.
