In Cyberhus – CfDP – Centre for Digital Youth Care, we are aware that intervening early can save children from a lifetime of deprivation, as well as save society a lot of money. This is now supported by a new Danish report conducted by CASA, Center for Alternativ Samfundsanalyse (Centre for Alternative Social Analysis). The report argues that investing in early intervention is crucial in order for marginalised children and young people to break long term negative behavioural patterns, often inherited from the parents. CASA assesses that the economical potential for public gain is approximately 24 billion Danish kroner annually, if the marginalised children and young people are helped to a life of self-support instead of a life of public assistance.
