star this property answer text <p>We welcome the recent report by the Institute for Fiscal Studies on the health effects of Sure Start. Across the key health outcomes for children and young people, children living in households in the lowest socio-economic groups have worse outcomes than other children. There are clear benefits to early investment and support through pregnancy and the early years<strong>. </strong>Children’s centres can play an important role in supporting families, but it is right local councils decide how to organise and provide services for families in their areas to meet local needs – whether this is through children’s centre buildings or delivering services in different ways.</p><p> </p><p>Local authorities have a duty under the Childcare Act (2006) to ensure sufficient children’s centres to meet the needs of local families. Funding for children’s services (including children’s centres) is made available through the local government finance settlement. In addition, other government funding, including that for public health, adult skills training and troubled families may also be used locally to support services delivered wholly, or in part, through children’s centres. Children services funding for 2020-2021 and beyond will be determined in the Spending Review.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Where local authorities dispose of or change the use of buildings or other assets funded wholly or partly through Sure Start capital grants, they must repay the money through the claw-back process. The Department for Education has a thorough set of monitoring arrangements in place regarding clawback rules. Further information on the clawback process is set out in the ‘Sure Start, Early Years and Childcare Capital Guidance’ at: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/273740/capital_guidance.pdf" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/273740/capital_guidance.pdf</a>.</p><p>I refer the hon. Member for Norwich South to the answer given by my hon. Friend, former Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Childcare and Education, Sam Gyimah, on 29 February 2016 to Question <a href="https://www.parliament.uk/business/publications/written-questions-answers-statements/written-question/Commons/2016-02-24/28207/" target="_blank">28207.</a></p>

star this property answer text <p>Funding for children's services (including children's centres) gives local authorities the freedom to decide how best to target resources and respond flexibly to meet local need.
