Helping troubled families

What we're doing to help troubled families

Family First - Our implementation of the Government's Troubled Families Programme

Family First works towards helping families turn their lives around. Visit the UK Government website to find out more.

Phase 1

Between April 2012 and March 2015 we helped 110 families turn their lives around by: 

  • Getting children back into school
  • Reducing anti-social behaviour
  • Reducing youth crime
  • Helping adults get back to work

Phase 2

In April 2015 we started phase 2. We'll be working with 340 families over the next 5 years. 

We'll be focussing on key problems such as:

  • Improving attendance or getting children back into school
  • Reducing involvement with criminal offences and anti-social behaviour
  • Helping adults back to work
  • Helping young people into education or training
  • Helping families affected by domestic abuse and violence 
  • Helping parents and children with a range of health problems
