Rishi Sunak – 2019 Comments on the Troubled Families Programme

The comments made by Rishi Sunak, the then Local Government Minister, on 28 March 2019.

The success of the Troubled Families Programme is down to the tremendous efforts and tireless work of all those involved including the families themselves.

I have seen first-hand how the programme has made a real difference for families up and down the country, with fewer children going into care, fewer adults going to prison and more adults back in work.

When we strengthen our families, we strengthen society; because when families thrive, we all thrive.

This government will continue to champion families at every turn, helping them play their part in a society where no one is left behind.
