Ministerial taskforce for Troubled Families

Prime Minister David Cameron has created an “implementation taskforce” tasked with monitoring and driving delivery of the government’s most important cross-departmental priorities.

The troubled families taskforce will be chaired by Communities Secretary Greg Clark and will have 8 members tasked with "clearing away the red tape to improve the lives of the country’s most troubled families". 

Members include children’s minister Edward Timpson, Justice Secretary Michael Gove, Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt, and Work and Pensions Secretary Iain Duncan Smith.

A further “Earn or Learn” taskforce, which comprises eight members, including Education Secretary Nicky Morgan, will oversee changes that will see unemployed 18-to 21-year-olds given six months to find work or training before their jobseeker's allowance is withdrawn.
