National Impact Study



The Family Focus Programme is delivered by City of York Council. The Family Focus team supports families with a variety of needs in York. Our aim is to coordinate services for families and to provide the best quality of help for families. This work is part of a national programme managed by the Department of Communities and Local Government (DCLG).


The DCLG want to evaluate how the programme is working for families and what impact it is having for families in York. The DCLG call this evaluation the National Impact Study.
