Iain Stewart MP for MK South, said: “The Conservatives have made huge progress improving outcomes for families but sadly there are still families struggling with insecure housing, substance misuse and other challenges.

“That is why I am delighted the Supporting Families Programmes is being expanded into its tenth year so vulnerable families in Milton Keynes South will benefit from a share of £980,500 funding to provide tailored keyworker support to help them turn their lives round.

“Through Covid and cost of living challenges, the Conservative Government has targeted support at those who need it most – only the Conservatives can deliver for the most vulnerable in our society.”

Ben Everitt MP for MK North, added: "A core Conservative value is a focus on families so I'm really encouraged to see the Government continuing to support families who are struggling with substance misuse, insecure housing or a range of other challenges and issues.

“The extension of the Supporting Families Programmes into its tenth year to help vulnerable families in Milton Keynes thanks to a further £980,500 worth of funding will be vital in helping dramatically improve the lives of families thanks to targeted keyworker support."
