The Labour election victory of May 1997 provided an opportunity to change policy. The intention was to place the improvement of people's lives at the centre of government strategy. The Government wanted to break the cycle whereby disadvantaged children repeated their parents' experiences of poor education, physical and mental ill-health, and poverty. This chapter describes the development of the Sure Start Programme for children and reports the findings of the national evaluation. This has been a key component of the Government's policy to breaking the cycle of deprivation.
