Narrowing the Gap (NtG) is a two-year development and research programme, funded by the DCSF and the LGA, working in partnership with other agencies, including local authorities. It seeks to make a significant difference, on a national scale, to the performance of Children’s Trust arrangements in ‘narrowing the gap’ in outcomes between ‘vulnerable’ children and the rest.

This current report is the third in a series and provides both a progress report and updated information related to the two main aims of the study.
