4 PbR forecast

5 Stronger Families – Phase 1 into Phase 2 PbR claims will continue to be made during the final months of the current programme with the final claim opportunity for Phase 1 families in May On current projections (previous slide) it is forecast that, as expected, the total funding for the programme will exceed committed expenditure later in Proposals to reinvest this PbR income into an extension of the current arrangements for intensive family support from the Stronger Families team into 2015/16 will be developed during the next few months. 5Early Help & Stronger Families

6 Stronger Families – Phase 2 Expanded programme confirmed in the recent Budget: Early indications are that the current criteria will continue but that the programme will also reach families with younger children, plus “focus on big concerns such as domestic violence and mental and physical health problems”. Estimated target of 600 families per year in Worcestershire Reduced payments per family (assumed that families will have less complex needs and a greater % of the funding based on PbR) 6Early Help & Stronger Families

7 Stronger Families – Phase 2 Possible opportunity for Worcestershire to join the expanded programme before the end of 14/15, which will assist in transition arrangements for families There is a requirement that a multi-agency plan is in place for phase 2 of the programme During May and June 2014 there will be an opportunity for stakeholders to comment on national proposals including:- indicators and identification of eligible families the financial offer and the payment by results expectations the expectations on Troubled Families Co-ordinators and the future of the national evaluation 7Early Help & Stronger Families

8 Stronger Families – Phase 2 Formal consultation on proposals to follow as outlined previously but input on the following welcome now: Suggested criteria for identifying families – multi-agency approach Potential involvement in the application of the Cost Calculation tool and consideration of pooled budgets Views on how the Stronger Families programme can work with local arrangements for joined up/multi-agency working inc. Districts, Housing, CCGs, Children’s/Adults Services, schools/colleges etc (Role for Local Children’s Trusts?)
