This document has been developed to help troubled families teams to find information and training they may benefit from when supporting families with their health needs. As health will be a more prominent feature of the expanded programme, troubled families teams will have an increasing role in identifying where families need support with their health needs and understanding what services are available.

Health training courses can support those working with troubled families to develop the following key competencies:

  • Confidence in having conversations with families about their health;
  • Ability to identify health issues;
  • Ability to provide basic advice on maintaining good health;
  • Ability to get families to resolve low level health issues independently; and
  • Knowledge of how to access local health services for high level needs.
