Troubled Families programme expanded to support younger children

August 28th, 2014

Eric Pickles recently announced details of an expansion to the Troubled Families programme to help younger children get a better start in life.

The Troubled Families programme will retain its current focus on reducing truancy, crime and anti-social behaviour, but will apply the approach to more families with a wider set of issues including domestic abuse, debt and where children are at risk of being taken into care.

The programme will expand from working with children of school age to include those under five years old, and will have a particular focus on improving poor health which is a particular issue for ‘troubled families’.
