Ann Coffey – 2015 Parliamentary Question to the Department for Communities and Local Government

The below Parliamentary question was asked by Ann Coffey on 2015-10-13.

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, how many local authorities in phase two of the Troubled Families programme have made tackling (a) child sexual exploitation and (b) sexual abuse an outcome in their Troubled Families Outcome Plan.

Greg Clark

Troubled Families Outcomes Plans are locally designed and owned documents that state how each local authority will demonstrate significant and sustained progress against the whole range of complex problems that a family on the programme may have. We have no current detailed analysis of child sexual exploitation and abuse within all Outcome Plans, but the programme is designed to be flexible so that all local authorities can bring in families where they believe child sexual exploitation or sexual abuse is an issue, and they believe the family would benefit from being included on the programme.
