Guide that looks at ways of supporting families away from the causes and consequences of disadvantage and poverty. It suggests how local authorities and their partners, including the voluntary and community sectors, can work together effectively to achieve better
outcomes for families. It should inform existing provision, new initiatives and commissioning strategies.
The guide is based on evaluation evidence from the Child Poverty Pilots that the Government’s Child Poverty Unit funded from 2009 to 2011. The pilot programme supported low-income families both working and not working, families with emerging needs and families
with multiple problems.
