Abstract:

This roundtable discussion explores the politics of Sure Start from its earliest days, and the thinking behind it. Tessa Jowell was the Labour Minister responsible for setting it up and she talks to the psychotherapist and author of Love Matters and The Selfish Society, Sue Gerhardt, and Sarah Stewart Brown, Professor of Public Health at Warwick University. They discuss the central importance of early infancy in determining the life chances and psychological wellbeing of both children and adults.
