GMB, the union for early years' workers, has welcomed new research by the Institute for Fiscal Studies on the health impacts of the Sure Start programme.

Rehana Azam, GMB National Secretary, said:

“GMB has longed campaigned to stop sure start closures so we welcome this report.

“It proves what parents and people who work in Sure Start already know - the programme has made a huge difference for families. 

"Ministers must now provide the funding required to rebuild the Sure Start network as a matter of urgency."
