New figures show that Lancashire County Council has helped more families than any other council under the government’s ‘Troubled Families’ programme.
Troubled Families is a ‘payment by results’ programme and so far, Lancashire County Council has been able to claim £427,000 for successful work with 734 families with complex needs.
Matthew Tomlinson, cabinet member for children, young people and schools, said: “This is an outstanding achievement by the county council and our partners which include district councils, the police, health, schools and voluntary organisations. I’d like to congratulate them on their great work.
“I’d also like to thank the families in Lancashire we have worked with to achieve such positive results. Their commitment to tackling the difficulties they face, and a truly innovative working approach by agencies, has proved to be a winning combination.”
