The Department for Work & Pensions and the Department for Communities and Local Government have agreed a package to boost the employment prospects of troubled families.
The 3 parts of this package are:
- a new ‘delivery agreement’ between Jobcentre Plus and local authorities to give intensive employment support to whole families
- a new network of 150 Troubled Families Employment Advisers in the 94 local authorities with the highest numbers of troubled families
- better data sharing between Jobcentre Plus and local authorities so that advisers know which troubled families need employment help and can track their progress and address their needs more effectively
