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.
