Focus Family work supports professionals to work in a holistic family centred way.  Evidence suggests this approach helps to maintain improvements in a family.

The drive for Focus Family work is to help adults into employment / volunteering / training with the aim that mental health & emotional wellbeing is improved and the family move out of poverty. 

The Focus Family Team has identified enough families to meet our commitment for Phase 2 of The Troubled Families Project. Currently, we plan to deliver the same level of support to families and agencies until March 2020.

The phase 2 Focus Family criteria are:

  • ASB/Crime
  • Not attending school regularly
  • Worklessness
  • Domestic Abuse
  • Health
  • Children who need help

We can be contacted via our Focus Family Mailbox:    focusfamily@cumbria.gov.uk
