LGA responds to Troubled Families Programme evaluation

Chair of the Local Government Association’s Children and Young People Board, Cllr Anntoinette Bramble, responds to the National Evaluation of the Troubled Families Programme.

“Councils have played a pivotal role in making the Troubled Families Programme a success for some of the most vulnerable families, and we urge the Government to continue funding this vital service.

“This is one of the few remaining sources of early intervention funding for councils, with the Government’s Early Intervention Grant cut by £600 million since 2013. 

“However if councils are to effectively support families and intervene early, then the Government must use the Spending Review to address the wider financial pressures on services that support children and families. Children’s services alone face a £3.1 billion funding gap by 2025.”
