Troubled families programme

The Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government has published a series of reports outlining findings from the evaluation of the Troubled Families Programme 2015 to 2020. Reports include: a summary of key findings from the different strands of the evaluation; an overview of data about the families worked with and the programme’s impact; qualitative findings from interviews with families and staff; and findings from surveys with the programme’s coordinators, keyworkers, employment advisers and participants. Findings include: the programme appears to have reduced the proportion of looked after children and the proportion of adults and children receiving custodial sentences; evidence suggests families at risk are being identified more proactively and that multi-agency working has strengthened.
