Ministers have backed plans to roll-out troubled families-style reforms into other local services.
The proposals, suggested by the Service Transformation Challenge Panel last year, will see local services such as employment and social care built around the people using them.
Local government secretary, Eric Pickles, said the success of the troubled families programme could help drive improvements in other areas.
‘The panel have given us a blueprint for better services in the years ahead, with plans that put people first by joining up what they do around the user,’ said Pickles.
‘That’s an approach that gets better results and costs less too and I’m pleased that we are now pushing it forward.’
The Government set out what action it will be taking on the panel’s other recommendations including:
• plans to identify the total cost of providing support to individuals and families with multiple complex needs in order to inform thinking ahead of the next spending review
• a review of how funding for transformation can be improved in the next parliament
• agreement that different places should receive different levels of responsibility according to local circumstances
• £5m funding to increase the Public Service Transformation Network’s capacity to work with local areas
