Targeting Support
– Families where a need has been assessed
through the Children’s Social Care, but not
requiring Children’s Social Care interventions
– Post Child Protection Plan – benefiting from a
post deregistration support package to reduce
the likelihood of them returning into the social
care system and been reregistered. Work will
focus on building resilience and reducing risk.
– YOS
– Persistent high risk Anti-social Behaviour
Current Work on Pathways
• One Front Door
• Agreed Thresholds- referral system
• Integrated Working Procedure Review
• CAF – review and alignment with Prevention

• What blend of services do we need as we move forward?
The future Role of Children’s Centres
• Taking into account budget reductions – can
children’s centres work in clusters to develop
savings proposals of 10% and 20% that would
minimise impact on service delivery?
• Identify the opportunities and risks with
regard the introduction of charging for some
services? (questions on tables)
Troubled Families
Troubled Families Programme - Overview
‘Troubled families’ are households who:
• Are involved in crime and anti‐social behaviour
(ASB)
• Have children not in school and
• Have an adult on out of work benefits
Further detail underpinning Three “filters” indicated
in Guidance
Thus by implication they cause high cost to public
purse
Troubled Families Programme
Salient points:
• We are “required” to “turn around” 1200
families over 3 years
• We will need to work with more families not all will be “turned around”
• Payment by Results; “Results” defined by
programme
Troubled Families Programme
Progress so far
• 157 meet 3/3, 667 - 2/3 criteria, across a
spectrum of need
• Database developed
• Co-ordinator role ratified
• Wider information sharing agreement drafted
• Stakeholder meetings in place
• Commissioned service review undertaken
• Full project plan in place.
