Detail

In June 2013, the government announced plans to expand the Troubled Families programme for a further 5 years from 2015 to 2016 and reach up to an additional 400,000 families across England. Budget 2014 announced that the highest performing areas (those that have ‘turned around’ the lives of the most families in the current programme) would be offered the opportunity to start delivery of the expanded Troubled Families programme early - during 2014 to 2015. This financial framework supports the early starters to deliver the programme, it covers:

  • the role of ‘early starter’ local authorities
  • identifying families
  • measuring success
  • verification and validation of results

Ahead of the national roll out of the expanded programme in April 2015, the Department for Communities and Local Government’s Troubled Families Team will provide a further iteration of the financial framework. This will reflect learning and examples drawn from work with the ‘early starter’ areas during the remainder of 2014 to 2015.
