" This is an excellent piece of work, which I recommend to service planners, students of social policy and service providers alike, since it, and the more detailed published papers it references, contains useful lessons at all levels." Children and Society "A useful piece of research analysis and policy discussion." D Saltiel, University of Leeds "Each chapter in this book provides a robust, well referenced and detailed analysis of the various aspects of the SSLPs and of the on-going monitoring undertaken by NESS." British Journal of Social Work, Vol 38:6, 2008. "This book offers students and professionals, policymakers and evaluators working with young children and families a full overview of the Sure Start programme... The book contains some rigorous analysis of complex data but also some very accessible writing by academics." Lynda Hassall, Community Care June 2008 "This complex and comprehensive evaluation is written with admirable skill and diplomacy. For those of us in health, education and social care, it focuses on raising the profile of preventive action in the early years." Mitch Blair, River Island Paediatric and Child Health Academic Centre, Imperial College
