Social Exclusion Unit: Pilot Schemes

Volume 461: debated on Tuesday 19 June 2007

To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what pilot projects have been (a) initiated and (b) supported by the Social Exclusion Unit and the Social Exclusion Task Force; and which of those have since been implemented on a national basis. (143803)

‘Reaching Out’, the Social Exclusion Action Plan, published last September announced three sets of pilots: 10 Family Nurse Partnership (FNP) are now up and running; 12 Adults Facing Chronic Exclusion (ACE) were launched on 18 June; and up to 6 Multi Systemic Therapy (MST) for which the invitation to tender is due to take place in July. Progress on the pilots will be closely evaluated to provide lessons for cross-Government programmes tackling social exclusion.
