Monitoring and evaluation of family intervention services and projects between February 2007 and March 2011

Family interventions were set up to work with some of the most troubled and challenging families to tackle anti-social behaviour (ASB), youth crime, inter-generational disadvantage and worklessness. They take an intensive and persistent multi-agency approach to supporting families to overcome their problems, coordinated by a single dedicated ‘key worker’. Family interventions form part of the Prime Minister’s commitment to work with every troubled family – and specifically to turn around the lives of the estimated 120,000 troubled families in England.

This report provides the latest monitoring evidence on families working with a family intervention between February 2007 and 31st March 2011.
