This is a completed questionnaire concerning children's centres. We believe the guidance would be more helpful if it provided some examples to give local authorities support in identifying families that live in their area that are most at risk of poor outcomes.

Breaking barriers

Our organisation is committed to ensuring that children receive both the best start in life and the best chance for a positive future. One way we seek to achieve this is through our network of more than 40 children’s centres across England.
We know that there are many challenges to engaging families that most need this support. Our report outlines the barriers disadvantaged families face to accessing children’s centres and how these can be overcome.
