Abstract

Sure Start local programmes (SSLPs) have been held up by the Department for Education and Skills as a model for the development of children's services in England. In particular, the value and importance of partnership working has been emphasised. This study examined the relationships between eight SSLPs and four local authorities with social services responsibilities (SSDs). It investigated how they were working together to provide preventative services to children under 4 and examined the impacts. Enablers and barriers to partnerships are discussed in terms of organisational, cultural and professional, and contextual issues.
