This report is based on a longitudinal follow-up survey of families in receipt of help from the Troubled Families Programme in nineteen local authorities, providing a picture of families’ lives and feedback on the keyworker experience. It presents findings from a cohort of 654 main carers and 307 young people who were interviewed in 2015/16 as they were starting on the programme and again around two years later, in 2017/8, looking at how their attitudes and circumstances may have changed over this time. Despite efforts, it was not possible to form a comparison group that was sufficiently robust, in order to establish a measure of impact.
