Supporting Hampshire's Troubled Families Programme

Worklessness

A key objective for the Supporting Troubled Families programme is to help adult family members into education, training, apprenticeship programmes, volunteering opportunities and sustainable employment. This support is available from Transform family support workers, as well as four Job Centre Plus (JCP) advisors who have been seconded to Hampshire’s Supporting Troubled Families Programme.  The JCP secondees will be working with families and practitioners to signpost to the extensive targeted back to work programmes that are in place across the County.
