Liz Kendall, Labour MP for Leicester West and a former member of the Shadow Cabinet, referenced the Sutton Trust in an article for Progress. She said:

Health visitors and other children’s services should play a stronger role in supporting parenting from birth, and – as the Sutton Trust recommends – all staff working with disadvantaged two-year-olds should be qualified to at least level 3 and supported by a graduate practitioner.

Liz Kendall also drew on the Sutton Trust’s research for an article on improving education for the Leicester Mercury.
