Troubled Families Bulletin

The national Troubled Families agenda has been widely reported in the media over the past two months following statements from the Prime Minister giving his personal commitment, as well as committing resources, to ‘turn round the lives of Britain’s 120,000 troubled families’. 

This is a cross-government agenda which is led by DCLG. Since the end of 2011, detailed expectations on local areas are starting to become clear. Many of you will become involved with this agenda over the next three years. Attached is the first in a series of bulletins to keep colleagues across the city up to speed with developments.
