This report is based on information provided by 67 local authorities on almost 17,000 families who were worked with as part of their local Troubled Families Programmes.

Its purpose is to:

  • Demonstrate the issues facing troubled families in the year before and after intervention on the programme.
  • Detail the costs to local authorities of delivering the Troubled Families Programme.
  • Demonstrate the sorts of fiscal benefits that may have arisen after these families received support from the programme.
