Abstract

This qualitative study was undertaken in a small ethnically diverse town in the South East of England. The participants were female victims who had suffered from domestic abuse and had received targeted family support from services in one local authority as part of the Troubled Families programme launched in 2011.The scheme focussed primarily on integrating services concerned with youth crime, unemployment within families, substance misuse and teenage pregnancy. The scope of the scheme was further expanded to reach out and work with families with multiple and complex problems. As part of this expansion victims of domestic abuse received multi-agency integrated targeted family support delivered through a family support worker who coordinated a wide range of interventions.
