To ask the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, how much funding has been allocated to the Troubled Families programme (a) nationally, (b) regionally and (c) in each local authority area in each year since that programme has been in operation.
22 March 2019
The Department allocated £920 million to the expanded Troubled Families programme which runs between 2015 and 2020.
The Troubled Families Programme is a payment by results programme and funding allocations are made on a multi-year rather than an annual basis so local authorities can claim payment when their work with families results in significant and sustained progress.
Funding has been allocated to top tier local authorities based on the level of need as indicated by local data taken from the census (population, demographics), levels of deprivation, employment, unemployment and crime statistics.
