Family Intervention Projects

Volume 472: debated on Wednesday 5 March 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families what funds have been allocated to family intervention projects for each of the next three financial years. (191386)

The Secretary of State announced on 5 October 2007 that the Department for Children, Schools and Families would provide on-going funding of up to £18 million over the next three years to sustain the recently established network of 53 Family Intervention Projects. Projects will get ongoing tapered funding over 2008-11 based on current allocations. Evaluation evidence from the 53 projects shows that families who in the past may have been written off by agencies are now being offered the right help and incentives to become decent members of their community and provide their children with life chances.
