    Abstract

    Sure Start began in England under the UK’s former Labour government as an intervention for families with young children, particularly targeting the most deprived in society. More than a decade later the service is under threat in many parts of the country as local councils face financial difficulties. This article considers the origins, purpose and future of the service.
