A NEW project to support troubled families has been a success, says Hampshire County Council.

The Supporting Troubled Families Programme has identified 546 families in need in the area in its first year.

The county council says workers have gone on to 
help 50 families see improvements, by getting youngsters back into education, fixing poor school attendance and seeing a reduction in youth crime and anti-social behaviour.
