Foreword: New Deal for Communities launched in 1999 to help close the gap between 39 deprived neighbourhoods and the rest of the country the ten year scheme is one of the most ambitious area based initiatives ever launched in England. Salford Council successfully completed Phase 1 of its New Deal for Communities (NDC) process in April 2000 and selected Charlestown and Lower Kersal as the area for in which the work should be carried out. The Charlestown/Lower Kersal Partnership was awarded £53 million in NDC funding. The initiative focused on tackling areas such as; crime; health; worklessness; education and community involvement. The Partnership Board approved the Health Investment Strategy in 2007, a number of outcomes within that strategy related to improving mental health outcomes, reducing social isolation and increasing support for pregnant women and mothers with children under five. The Health Task Group worked on re-configuring the existing Maternity Services project into the Enhanced Maternity Services project which focused on tackling the aforementioned outcomes and commissioning an external evaluation to see what difference the project has made to the lives of local families.
