Sure Start survey shows why disadvantaged families need support

34
New research published by the Department for Education presents findings from a baseline survey of families using Sure Start Children’s Centres (SSCCs), which aim to reduce inequalities in child development and school readiness. The data forms part of a six-year study examining SSCCs in the most disadvantaged areas of England, and was taken from interviews with a sample of 5,717 parents with a “selected child” aged 9-18 months old.
The survey explored take-up of services at the centres, as well as the socio-economic characteristics of the families using them.

 Extensive findings are detailed in the report, and a research brief outlines key results. Negative findings were often associated with disadvantaged families, including:
