The early years of a child’s life are the most formative and the most important. It is in the interests of those in the local authority to ensure that a child’s early years are as optimum as possible.
Proper care during these years will allow for the best possible development and opportunities for the child. But how best to achieve this at a local level?
Local government has faced an unprecedented challenge over the last few years – savage cuts, increasing demand and rising expectation – and new approaches have had to be evolved to better service the needs of children and families, including provision of more and safer areas in which the children could play.

Radically restructuring local authorities’ access to services, the Commissioning Support Programme is working with national partners and leading commissioners to find solutions. Established in late 2008, their success comes from their ability to be a powerful agent of change through a unique commissioning approach.
Their approach is focused around brokering local relationships and partnerships that can ensure an effective range of services, delivered how and where families want them and in a way that makes the best use of resources and expertise.
The success of the initiative has come from an objective view of the totality of the problem on a national level, allowing the delivery of better outcomes for children, young people and families at a local level.
Best Practice, Policy and Guidance for Early Years
Part of this success has come from the pooling of national resources to create a “bank” of knowledge and experience, allowing the sharing of best practice and the establishment of general policy and guidance regarding a child’s early years.
The methodology does not promote a particular service design but empowers local professionals and communities to understand the system and create a more effective design. It offers a pragmatic, scalable way of implementing Total Place and Big Society, which quickly implements a top-led bottom-up design of local services.
The Commissioning Support Programme works flexibly with all local authorities in England and their partner organizations to help them achieve better outcomes for children, young people and their families.
