Coun­cil gets more cash

Macclesfield Express - - SCHOOLS NEWS -

CHESHIRE East Coun­cil has se­cured a sec­ond phase of fund­ing thanks to its suc­cess in work­ing with com­plex fam­i­lies.

The coun­cil has suc­cess­fully helped 585 fam­i­lies through sup­port and in­ter­ven­tion mea­sures via its Fam­ily Fo­cus pro­gramme. This has also led to a re­duc­tion in youth crime and anti-so­cial be­hav­iour, im­proved school at­ten­dance and as­sisted many adults into em­ploy­ment.

The team will re­ceive more fund­ing to roll out a sec­ond phase of the pro­gramme.
