Inquiry: Sure Start Children's Centres
Wednesday, March 27, 2013
The Education Committee is conducting an inquiry into Sure Start Children's Centres examining the core purpose of Sure Start children's centres, their effectiveness and the range of services and activities provided.
The Committee will compare children's centres with similar initiatives in other countries and look at how to define and measure good practice in family and parenting support outreach. The MPs will also consider how to increase the involvement of families (especially fathers, disadvantaged families, minority ethnic groups and families of children with SEN and disabled children) in the running of children’s centres and in their regular activities and how the overall level and quality of provision is being affected by moves to local funding.
