Pirate FM has learnt a project to turn around 'troubled' families has not helped any in Cornwall.

The government's flagship scheme to cut anti-social behaviour has identified nearly five hundred in the Duchy.

Bosses say it will take time for results to show.

Adam from Treneere in Penzance has a young family and says help is long overdue: "They should have had it years ago. I'm 21 and I can't get a job. I'm just sat at home bored and doing nothing really. They've got to do something about it.

"It is awkward. They've got to do something for kids down here. All the sixteen year olds are sitting down here drinking, smoking, fighting - which doesn't help anyone. They've got nothing to do."

Kayleigh Bray set up a youth group in Redruth to help stop children getting into trouble.

The former Pirate FM Local Hero Award winner said: "I think these things definitely do take time. You're going into their lives, working with their children and with the parents. You have to invest time and energy and build that trust with them before you can see a massive turn around - it isn't something that happens overnight.

"You have to be very careful with labels such as 'turned around'. You could have one family which has a very small success in the government scheme's eyes but that could consitute a major turn around for that person or that family."
