  2. It’s all about… • Giving families the tools and support they need to meet their own challenges… • …and the resilience to conquer future challenges with less intervention • Less cost to the public purse • Making best use of time and resources

  3. Key messages • Start small and manageable • Design – deliver – challenge – learn – grow - review cycle • A system that suits East Sussex’s needs, not simply the Government requirements • Family participation and frontline worker consultation essential parts of design • Linking with key developments and projects (Thrive, MASH, Section 75, etc) • Name of project under review!

  7. TFT’s Financial Framework • We would be able to take part in the payment by results scheme when families have the following criteria: • Young people involved in crime and families involved in anti-social behaviour • Households affected by truancy or exclusion from school • Locally defined criteria (next slide) And also have an adult on out-of work benefits.

  8. Local discretion filter For us to define, could include: • Child protection • More than three additional services • Criminal activity • Underlying health problems (including mental health, substance misuse) • Teenage pregnancy • Domestic abuse Any others?

  9. Financial arrangements, per family: Average cost of intensive intervention £10,000 Payment by results £4,000 2013/14 60% £2,400 2014/15 40% £1,600 attachment fee 2012/13 80% £3,200 p/family

  10. By 30th April we need to: • Commit to working with 1,015 families (846 of whom will be eligible for pbr), supporting the programme and finding a coordinator • Propose the number of families we aim to start working with in 2012/13 (one-third = possible attachments fees of £900,000)

  11. Next steps for East Sussex Continue to develop the local scheme • Appoint coordinator and team, identify and train keyworkers • Complete data analysis to find out who the families are and who we want to work with • Work out the money – how much, who’s eligible, how much risk can we take and where should it be invested
