Abstract

This study reports on the findings from the implementation and outcomes of Haringey’s Children’s Fund Programme (HCF) between 2003 and 2005. The Children’s Fund programme aimed to provide improved co-ordinated preventive services for children and young people aged to 5 – 13 years to enable them to overcome their ‘poverty of experience’. HCF began in January 2002 and received £2 million until 2004 after which the funding was tapered as central government phased out the initiative. The study adopted a multi-method approach which included: Observations of management meetings, interviews with partners and stakeholders, and an analysis of minutes of meetings and guidance documents; semi-structured interviews with Children’s Fund staff and project managers; Semi-structured and open interviews with young people participating on the programme (200 in total). The data analysis identifies the beneficial processes of change that occurred as a result of participating on the programme.
