Support for Families

Also known as: Strengthening Families Programme, Supporting Families Programme

Service Description: The Supporting Families Programme is led by The Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities (DLUHC). Supporting Families has been created to transform services. It gets them to work using the whole family approach. Services need to consider every member of the family within assessments and family plans rather than focusing on individuals.

This programme encourages services to work with families with multiple issues. Taking on an integrated whole family approach. This approach recognises and deals with their overlapping and interconnected problems and histories.

The previous programme was known as Strengthening Families programme. The Supporting Families programme replaces that scheme.
