This chapter builds on the review of the interests at play in the early intervention field and examines them through case studies of three high-profile initiatives. The first case study focuses on the Wave Trust, a campaigning and policy advocate organisation that has been highly influential politically in promoting brain-based early intervention in the UK. It claims a ‘business centred’ approach to breaking damaging intergenerational family cycles of abuse and violence. The second case study subjects the origins, delivery, and evidence claims of the Family Nurse Partnership (FNP) early intervention programme to scrutiny. The third case study explores the nodal network position of Parent Infant Partnership UK, which advocates for an emphasis on attachment between primary caregivers and babies.

Keywords:   early intervention, Wave Trust, policy advocate organisation, family cycles, abuse, Family Nurse Partnership, Parent Infant Partnership, primary caregivers
