Ipswich, Suffolk (PRWEB UK) 28 June 2012
Many of these families will have been identified as ‘troubled’ by local authorities following the introduction of new incentives by the Government to tackle anti-social behaviour following the riots last summer.
Eye watering Government released figures have revealed that these families cost in the region of £9 billion per year, £75,000 per family and in December 2011 it was announced that a further £450 million is to be spent on helping 120,000 of those who have been identified, through various criteria, as ‘troubled.’
Fiona Ellis of Clarifi explains: “Communities Secretary Eric Pickles is quoted as saying that those identified ‘are both troubled and causing trouble’ and that the government is keen to ‘get to the bottom of their problems and resolve them’.”
“A lot of money has been earmarked to help these families but our concern is that the issue of Childhood Sexual Abuse may not be considered or addressed appropriately and a genuine chance to solve some serious issues will be overlooked and in some cases compromise the success of the Government’s programme,” Fiona continues.
Clarifi runs highly successful therapeutic programmes for both men and women who have disclosed incidents of childhood sexual abuse and who are looking to find a way forward in their lives.
Fiona concludes: “Many of the people who come to us have extremely low self-esteem; can suffer from depression or addictions. They are often in poor relationships and in some cases have had their children removed by Social Services. By working with the whole family at the onset of problems being identified, our Early Intervention measures can provide a proven, long term and sustainable outcome for these vulnerable families and especially where children are at risk of going in to care.”
