The vital role that Sure Start children’s centres play in improving the outcomes for some of the most disadvantaged families in the UK is well documented. But whilst public support has never been more strong; so too are the pressures of new legislation in tough financial times.
As ever, Sure Start Conference and exhibition continues to be the essential event for all children’s centre leaders and local authority officers, equipping attendees with the most up to the minute policy and best practice guidance.
Challenging times require new ways of working to ensure sustainability, quality and the best possible outcomes for families.
This year national and regional experts will share their knowledge through a series of forward thinking plenary sessions, panel debates and best practice workshops.
