Priority families partnership

Burton Dassett

  • Priority families Programme

    During 2011 the Department of Work & Pensions and the Department of Communities and Local Government announced two new initiatives aimed at improving the life chances of families.

  • Family poverty

    Financial deprivation blights families’ lives and blunts children’s expectations for the future. Children growing up in poverty miss out; they are less likely to stay on at school, more likely to suffer from health problems and more likely to become involved in crime.
