The Stronger Families programme is

agenda. The government estimates that 900 families in
Worcestershire meet the national criteria of:
- having an adult on out of work benefits,
- children not being in school (unauthorised
- family members being involved in crime and anti-social
Additional grant funding is being made
available to local authorities to support intensive and challenging
work with families who meet all three of the above criteria or at
least two of the above criteria and one of Worcestershire's locally
The programme has a steering group who have
agreed an integrated response based on:
- A team of Stronger Family Support Workers
- Delivery of an intensive Stronger Families Intervention
- Multi-agency working with families
- Co-working with social care teams, and
- Support for identified key workers in specialist family support
teams, schools, AOHN projects, housing providers etc.
