When Ci was first approached about the Government’s Troubled Families Initiative our first reaction was to wonder how it might feel to be labeled as a ‘troubled family’. Now we will have the chance to find out as part of the team delivering the Suffolk TF initiative called Suffolk Family Focus (SFF).
Ci’s distinctly creative approach to social innovation will help the team to understand the perspective of practitioners and the families through an innovative project to co-produce the relationship between practitioner and family. We will also be conducting primary research with families and practitioners.
In order to help promote the transformation that SFF hopes to achieve we will also be developing a Learning Network with online forum and face to face events. Evidence gathered through these projects and other strategies will contribute towards a qualitative evaluation designed to support Suffolk Family Focus improve outcomes for families facing multiple challenges.
