Providing a Sure Start

This final chapter will summarise some of the key messages already rehearsed in other chapters on what we know works for children, describe some broader lessons about the difficulties of moving from innovation to the creation of an overall system in public services, and give some views about both the legacy of Sure Start, and where it might go in the future. This chapter will also look more broadly at what we have learned from Sure Start about the way government works. It will explore what ministers themselves think should have been done differently, what aspects of the programme made it particularly challenging to implement, and what remains as a legacy of Sure Start.
