Troubled Families Programme

Request

In relation to the Troubled Families programme, would you please provide me with the following:


1. How many families were returned as living with five out seven multiple disadvantages - which include no parent in the family is in work, family lives in poor quality or overcrowded housing, no parent has any qualifications, mother has mental health problems, at least one parent has a long-standing limiting illness, disability or infirmity, family has low income (below 60% median), family cannot afford a number of food and clothing items - in your authority in the year 2009-2010? These represent the population of families that could be considered for Family Intervention Projects.
2. How many families were returned in your area who met the criteria specified in the DCLG’s 'financial framework for the Troubled Families programme’s payment-by-results scheme for local authorities'?
3. How many families were returned in your area who solely met the criteria specified in the DCLG’s 'financial framework for the Troubled Families programme’s payment-by-results scheme for local authorities' solely on the grounds of worklessness?
4. How many families were returned in your area who solely met the criteria specified in the DCLG’s 'financial framework for the Troubled Families programme’s payment-by-results scheme for local authorities' solely on the grounds of local discretion?
5. Any assessment made in the last year that the council has made of the savings that could make if troubled families were helped by intervention projects?
6. And if possible within cost limits, how many times the local authority identified families who met one or both of the crime/ anti-social behaviour or education criteria under the government's Troubled Families scheme and used the new legal gateway enabling a GCSX secure email account to check if the named adults were claiming out of work benefits?
