Troubled Families scheme gets £165m funding boost

By Laura Sharman | 06 January 2020

The Government has confirmed up to £165m extra funding to support the Troubled Families programme.

Local government secretary, Robert Jenrick, said: 'The Troubled Families programme will help more people in need get access to the early, practical and coordinated support to transform their lives for the better.

'We want to build on the success of the programme in the coming year, delivering on our manifesto commitment to ensure we reach all those who could benefit from the programme – from the early years and throughout their lives.'

The latest evaluation of the programme showed that it had reduced children going into care by a third and cut the number of adults going to prison by a quarter.
