PDF (Improving lives: helping workless families)

This publication sets out plans to improve the support given to workless families and their children, so that they can overcome the complex problems they face. The proposals outlined in this document include:
• launching the next phase of the Troubled Families Programme, which will place a greater emphasis on helping parents with complex needs into work
• a new programme to reduce parental conflict by providing access to proven support for the most disadvantaged families, whether parents are together or separated
• enhancing the role of Jobcentre Plus in working with local partners in a more joined-up way, to identify people with complex needs at the right time and better address their needs
• greater support to help those with drug and alcohol dependencies into work, by implementing recommendations from Dame Carol Black’s review of employment and drug and alcohol dependency
