Programme to help support Nottinghamshire families

A three year programme to help support more than 1,580 troubled families in Nottinghamshire have been unveiled. The authority will receive £2.3m over the next three years as part of the Government’s Troubled Families Programme.

During the first year 2012 – 13, 439 families will receive support. Close links will be built with other agencies including the police, the probation service, health and the targeted youth support services.

Support will be offered to households that meet all of the following criteria:

  • involved in crime and anti-social behaviour
  • have children not in school
  • have an adult on out of work benefits
  • cause high costs to the public purse
