Aims and Objectives

As Lincolnshire’s response to the Government’s Troubled Families programme, Families Working Together is focused on the following key objectives:

  • Reducing crime and anti-social behaviour;
  • Increasing educational attendance and attainment;
  • Helping people return to and maintain paid work

By achieving the above, Families Working Together will reduce the number and intensity of statutory interventions and reduce costs to the public purse and to the taxpayer.

Work to date and independent research by the University of Lincoln highlights the importance of the relationship between Key Workers and families in achieving those goals.  Key Workers do not simply tell families what needs to be done, they provide them with the practical tools to achieve tasks and co-ordinate support services on their behalf.

Experience demonstrates that the improvements in family functioning that Key Workers are able to help families plan and achieve are an essential factor in realizing the key objectives of the programme outlined above.

The case studies available for download from this page show examples of how Families Working Together has delivered improved outcomes for families, communities and the taxpayer. You can also download a copy of the Families Working Together End of Year Report March 2012.

All of the downloads relate to the project in the first year of its inception as a Community Budget Pilot. From April 2012, the focus of Families Working Together is on the key objectives designated above that form the cornerstone of the Troubled Families programme.
