Council praised for helping troubled families in Warrington

First published in News

AROUND a third of ‘troubled families’ living in Warrington have had their lives turned round in the past two years, according to new figures.

Warrington Borough Council was praised for helping get the lives of 138 families back on track out of the 345 troubled families living in the borough.

This means that:

  •  Children are back in school for three consecutive terms where they were previously truant or excluded
  •  High levels of youth crime and anti-social behaviour have been significantly reduced
  •  And/or adults that were on benefits have been in work for at least three months.

Actually the council hasn't been praised for this so I presume this is a bit of PR spin put out by our lords and masters. The DCLG has commended the nationwide scheme aimed at helping troubled families but Warrington is ranked 108 out of 152 councils and is well below average overall and significantly behind those best performing councils who have managed to achieve rates of 80 - 90 % plus.

Well done on helping the families they have helped. But minus points for making stuff up to make the council look better than it actually is.
