Sure Start Collingwood and Stepney Local Programme Midwifery Project Evaluation

Drey, N., Ahmed, S., Macfarlane, A. J. & Roth, C. (2006). Sure Start Collingwood and Stepney Local Programme Midwifery Project Evaluation. London, UK: City University London.


This report forms the basis of an evaluation of Sure Start Collingwood and Stepney (SSC&S) Local Programme Midwifery Project. The midwifery project had been running for 15 months with a part-time midwife (0.6 FTE) and a full-time bilingual (English Sylheti) support worker. The project was designed to offer one to one antenatal and postnatal support to all women within the area. The project, along with all other Sure Start Programmes in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets (LBTH) has now finished as the new focus of Sure Start is with the Children’s Centres.

Sure Start Collingwood and Stepney is located in one of the most socially deprived boroughs in the country which has a high level of health inequality, high unemployment, extremely over crowded housing and a large minority ethnic population, many of whom do not speak English as a first language.
