On 11 June 2012 we announced that all 152 upper tier local authorities in England have agreed to run the Troubled Families programme in their area. In signing up to the programme, authorities have committed to appoint a Troubled Families Co-ordinator to run the programme locally and inform it nationally. So far 116 local authorities have confirmed that a Troubled Families Co-ordinator has been appointed in their area. Other authorities have a named lead officer who has been driving work on the programme locally while they proceed with recruitment of a co-ordinator.
