Troubled Families approach needed to boost life chances

The government is yet to launch its life chances strategy but he felt that the work of the Troubled Families initiative should form the basis of government attempts to boost life chances.

"There are many misconceptions around life chances, and I think that it's often everybody looking for a new idea that's going to be a silver bullet. The Troubled Families initiative is the sort of approach we need to see more of.

It will need us to assess, practically, on a family level, what the distribution of need is, and where an intervention can be made that will deliver an opportunity for somebody to help a child stay at school, get onto an apprenticeship, or secure a job."
