Families First guidance


The Welsh Government has published new guidance for the Families First programme.

The guidance is aimed at all those involved in the design, commissioning and delivery of services funded through the Families First programme, including Families First Coordinators, local authority service leads and delivery partners across all relevant sectors.

The non-statutory programme guidance has been produced in partnership with local authorities and key stakeholders and replaces the previous document, Families First: Programme Guidance (As at October 2011). The purpose of this guidance is to enable local authorities and their partners to understand Families First, its purpose and key aims, and sets out the Welsh Government’s expectations in relation to programme delivery.
