Working with local authorities to eliminate the school readiness gap.

Nesta’s vision is for every child to have the fairest possible start in life, so they can thrive and realise their potential. Our goal is that, by 2030, the UK will have eliminated the school readiness gap between those born into deprivation and their peers. This can’t be achieved by any single organisation in isolation, so we are working with innovation partners to help us realise our vision.
