Listening to Troubled Families
The report draws upon interviews with families carried out in May and June 2012 by Louise Casey. Six local authorities in England assisted with providing access to families. Families were recruited on the basis that they had been working with Family Intervention Projects in those local authorities and were willing to discuss their experiences – no specific requests for types of problems faced or backgrounds of a family were made. The interviews were recorded and transcribed with the permission of the families attending. A total of sixteen families contributed their experiences to this report. Names of respondents have been altered to preserve their anonymity.
