To agree that NYCC signs up to the Supporting Families Programme for 2023/2024 and 2024/2025


To agree that North Yorkshire Council signs up to the Supporting Families Programme for 2024/2025.

Reasons for the decision:

The government programme Supporting families, previously known as Troubled families, programme was launched in 2014 and NYCC has successfully fulfilled the requirements of the programme since 2015. Each year, the local authority is required to sign up to the programme and accept the grant.

The funding as in previous years is consists of two funding streams; funding for the delivery of intensive family support and developing the maturity of your Early Help system, paid at the beginning of the year as one full payment; and the other for achieving successful family outcomes with a minimum number of families, paid following each quarter’s submission of successful outcomes.

As part of the budget proposals for 2024/25 which were approved by Full Council in February 2024, £750k of the Supporting Families funding will contribute towards budget savings.

Decision exempt from call in due to DfE deadline for acceptance.
