  • Positive Families Partnership is a new initiative designed to help deal with the pressing social challenge of keeping vulnerable families together, by preventing young people from being taken into care


  • Over 350 at-risk families will be given access to therapeutic interventions with an established track record


  • The programme has been jointly commissioned by five London boroughs — Sutton, Tower Hamlets, Bexley, Merton and Newham — with support from the Big Lottery Fund


  • It has been structured as an outcomes contract, funded by a social impact bond — so the provider is paid for successfully keeping young people out of the care syst
