The national evaluation of the Troubled Families Programme has shown that the programme has helped reform public services and improved outcomes for families. This Government has announced funding of up to £165 million to extend the programme for an extra year. This will mean more people in need get access to the programme's early, practical and coordinated support to transform their lives for the better. This Government wants to build on the success of the programme in the coming year, delivering on our manifesto commitment to ensure we reach all those who could benefit from the programme – from the early years and throughout their lives – and we will set out the steps we plan to take in due course.
