Some of the country’s most troubled families will get a wake-up visit to get them out of bed for job interviews as part of the Government’s plan to extend a project that already targets 120,000 families.
Money to widen the scheme, which will also help make sure alcoholics and drug addicts go to rehab, has been allocated in the Government’s spending review for 2015-16, which is due to be announced on Wednesday.
Chancellor George Osborne is expected to say that £4,500 will be spent targeting each of the 400,000 high-risk families who cost taxpayers billions of pounds because of antisocial behaviour, truancy and lack of employment.
