Oldham Council is currently developing a long-term approach to supporting our troubled families, to last beyond the three year life-time of the Government’s troubled families programme.
In order to do this effectively, we need to be able to manage data from a range of different agencies, arriving in a range of different formats, in order to be able to accurately identify the families most likely to benefit from intervention, and to understand the impact of any intervention provided.
The Council’s approach to Troubled Families is not driven purely by the Government’s Payment by Results scheme, which focuses on school attendance, crime and anti-social behaviour and worklessness as key outcomes. This is certainly a key driver behind our programme. However, we are also keen to use the impetus provided by the national programme to develop a sustainable local approach that can be mainstreamed following the end of the Government’s payment by results scheme.
We are therefore interested in monitoring information relating to a much wider range of outcomes, including:
–          mental health;
–          drugs & alcohol;
–          domestic violence;
–          children in care.
We are also interested in exploring the impact improving outcomes for families has on their use of public sector services, for example:
–          attendances at A&E;
–          police call-outs;
–          GP prescriptions; etc.
Although this is the current, immediate, need for data matching and data warehousing, we anticipate that there will be many other instances arising in the near future (for example, Property Asset Management (matching properties across multiple system records) and Individual Electoral Registration (matching individuals). We are therefore keen to use our immediate need around troubled families to test out a solution that may have wider corporate applicability in future.
