12 Common issues for Families  Confusing landscape of public services  Isolation in their communities  Public services ‘ do to them ’  Lack of or limited choice/control  Public services in then out  Adverse effect on aspirations/ perception of social mobility  Domestic violence  Poor parenting  Difficulties maintaining relationships (incl. family, friends, peers, isolation & social marginalisation)  Lack of resilience (incl. capability, capacity, confidence & inability to cope)  Poor/overcrowded housing (incl. homelessness)  High risk behaviours (incl. substance misuse)  Poverty (incl. debt & unemployment)  Health (incl. mental health & disability)  Crime (offending and experience of)  Lack of education/ attainment What we learned from the Insight Phase… 12

13 Reoccurring Themes from Evidence Base, Current Literature and National Policy on What works:  Early intervention  Building resilience  Stability, continuity and transitions  Effective parenting and supporting families  Tackling educational performance  Tackling worklessness  Tackling poor health  Tackling poverty  Involving communities and building social capital  Building capabilities, resilience and skills development 13

14 “Many families were resigned to their situations, and did not appear to take responsibility for trying to improve them. One family had no sense of personal responsibility at all, and another’s primary responsibility was to get services out of their lives and would do and say things with that in mind”. “Families saw limited value in just being told or taught how to do something. They all wanted much more practical and hands on support, and wanted someone to actually come in and actually show them how to do things. They all appeared perfectly happy for someone to practically work with their children on behalf or in front of them”. “There is a real divergence between families’ own perceptions of themselves and how they perceive that professionals view them. Families use words such as caring, tight, coming together to sort their problems out etc. They say that professionals would see them as hectic, needy, chaotic, trouble etc. Families can’t see any recognition from many professionals of their strengths and just feel they are viewed in the negative”. 14 Common Perspectives from Families
