The Coral Initiative

What is the Coral Initiative?

The Coral Initiative (Children, Outcomes, Research, Action Learning) is a programme by Early Years – the organisation for young children aimed at tracking how the work of the organisation and member groups improves long term outcomes for young children, using evidence-based practice and policy advocacy.

It is hoped that these and other evidence-based programmes developed and utilised by the organisation will inform early years practice and policy in Northern Ireland and beyond and will lead to improved outcomes for young children and their families.
