Who we are

LINKS is a global network of researchers and practitioners that share a commitment to contributing to sustainable development and peacebuilding through investment in high quality early childhood development (ECD) programmes.

Supported by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) and UNICEF, LINKS is working with local teams in low- and middle-income countries impacted by conflict to develop early childhood development programmes and evaluate their impact in contributing to sustainable development and peacebuilding.
