Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) selects Williams Lea to develop its Troubled Families online data system

We are delighted to be helping DCLG by using our technology services and expertise to develop a online data system to capture data related to the Troubled Families programme, an important initiative to help turn around the lives of families.

The Troubled Families Programme was set up by government to improve the lives of families with problems and who cause problems to their communities, putting a high cost on the public purse. Via the Troubled Families programme, the government works with local authorities to help turn around the lives of these families and reduce costs in supporting them.

It is one of the world’s longest running national bibliographic services and has been the standard library listing for UK titles for over 60 years.

It publishes, on a daily basis, details of national and personal importance – from military exploits and the Queen’s Honours to business-critical information on bankruptcies and insolvencies. Now, following a groundbreaking technological makeover, The Gazette, and its data, have been transformed for the digital age.
