Details

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:

  1. a new ‘delivery agreement’ between Jobcentre Plus and local authorities to give intensive employment support to whole families
  2. a new network of 150 Troubled Families Employment Advisers in the 94 local authorities with the highest numbers of troubled families
  3. 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
