One report presents findings from a survey of families and their experiences using children’s centres. It adds to the research evidence on children’s centres by providing valuable insight from the perspective of families. The research provides strong evidence to show that children’s centres are successfully targeting disadvantaged families. Click here to view the report.
The DfE also surveyed leaders of children's centres in disadvantaged areas. The results reveal how children’s centre services changed between 2011 and 2013 and show that, overall, there is a move towards greater clustering of children’s centres, increased targeting of services on families with the greatest needs and staff reductions.
