The Future of the Troubled Families Programme: Supporting Families with Multiple Disadvantages

The ‘Troubled Families Programme’ is a targeted government intervention for families with multiple problems including crime, anti-social behaviour, truancy, unemployment, mental health problems, and domestic abuse. The first phase of the programme ran from 2012 to 2015, during which period the Government claimed to have “turned around” 99% of the 117,910 families that had been identified as the target. However, subsequent independent evaluation analyses questioned the validity of these claims and the methodology underpinning them.

As the Troubled Families programme enters its final year, this timely symposium will provide practitioners across local authorities, the police, social services, education, welfare and the housing sector with a timely and invaluable opportunity to learn from the first stage of this scheme and discuss how to effectively galvanise a range of local services around families in order to support them.
