Turn-Around for Torbay's Most Troubled
Torbay Council's successfully turned around the lives of 69 of the bay's most anti-social families.
The council's been working with 181 disruptive families since June 2012 as part of a government scheme.
69 have already made the grade which includes getting truant and excluded children back to school, getting adults off benefits and into work, cutting the high levels of crime and anti-social behaviour and cutting the cost to local public services.
And it's hoped that 365 troubled families will be helped to live successfully in the community by 2015.

Head the Troubled Families programme Louise Casey said:“By dealing with all the family members and all of their problems in a tough and intensive way we are finally getting to grips with problems which may have persisted for generations, giving hope to people who have often been failed in the past and relief for the communities that suffered the effects of their behaviour.”
