VCS Reps Needed for Troubled Families Task and Finish Group

You will no doubt have heard of the Troubled Families Initiative which is being rolled out by the government. Warwickshire is making good progress with this work and has a Task and Finish Group for which they would like 3 representatives from the Voluntary and Community Sector to be part of. The details of the meeting, which is next Monday, are below as is a briefing document on Troubled Families in Warwickshire.

If you are interested in being a VCS Representative on this group, contact Helen Smith as soon as possible.  One of the Reps would be required to be from a social housing provider.

Details of the Task & Finish Group meeting are as follows:

Monday 24th September 2012 1.30pm - 3.00pm

The T & F Group does not have formal ToR. Essentially, it is a sub group of the existing county management group for the Family Intervention Projects with a slightly expanded membership.

1.    General Update
2.    VCS Input and Perspectives
3.    Identifying families for inclusion within the Programme (mandatory criteria)
4.    Identifying current interventions
