Tackling Troubled Families - Early Intervention Strategies for Success #trbfam
20 Sep 2012

Headline Speakers

The Government has set out a number of policies to turn around the lives of 120,000 of the most troubled families. Extra funding has been made available for a network of people who will identify families in need of help.

To accompany this, Social Impact Bonds and an outreach programme will now run alongside the Work Programme.

So, how do you implement and resource these initiatives to tackle crime; antisocial behaviour; school truancy and complex health issues? View this conference broadcast and discover how your peers are putting these new initiatives into practice and better serving the needs of troubled families.
