Extra Cash To Turn Around Cornish 'Troubled Families'

Cornwall is going to get more money to help turn around so-called 'troubled families.'

It comes as the government extends its project to cut crime and anti-social behaviour by getting people back into work and school.

More than 1200 in the Duchy are already on the books, but Cornwall Council says it will not be helping any more just yet.

Spokesman Andrew Wallis explains why: "What we must do at first is help to solve the issues of these 1272 already without taking on too much more. That's not to say we wouldn't look at taking on more but we've still got about 508 that we need to positively engage with and move forward with them.

"We're trying to engage with as many troubled families as possible. Obviously, budgets restrict that so if we get a bit of extra money, then maybe we can look further afield."
