Starting out in the Civil Service with responsibility for Sure Start local programmes, her portfolio grew over seven years to include early education, childcare, parenting policy, and extended schools. She then spent one year as the Secretary of State’s Chief Adviser on Children’s Services. Her last three years before leaving the civil service were as Director of the Social Exclusion Task Force.
