Legislating for Sure Start Children's Centres

15 SEP 2008

The Government is consulting on proposals to give Sure Start Children's Centres (SSCCs) a specific statutory legal basis, as part of the forthcoming Education and Skills Bill.

The purpose of the proposed legislation is to establish SSCCs as a legally recognised part of the universal infrastructure for children's services, so their provision becomes a long term statutory commitment and part of the established landscape of early years provision. The proposed new duties reflect current good practice as reflected in existing guidance issued from DCSF, rather than creating any new requirements on local authorities or other service providers.

Responses are invited by the closing date of 6 November.
