The current 2015-20 Troubled Families Programme is designed to achieve improved outcomes in crime and anti-social behaviour as well as wider drivers of crime including education and employment.

According to the Troubled Families Programme’s 2019 family survey, fewer respondents reported contact with the police, and fewer reported police or landlord action as a result of involvement in crime or anti-social behaviour.

In the Social Housing Green Paper, “A new deal for social housing” we sought views on how landlords work with local partners to tackle anti-social behaviour. We also asked what key performance indicator could be used to measure this work.

We are currently considering the responses to the Green Paper consultation and our action plan and timetable for implementing wide-ranging reforms will be published in September.
