Family support pilots exceed targets

Nurse Family Partnership pilots in England are on track to meet a key target for the proportion of eligible mothers electing to receive their support, DoH figures suggest.

In a response to a written question from an MP, health minister Beverley Hughes said that as of 4 January this year, 85 per cent of women offered support through the pilots, which offer intensive home visiting support to vulnerable families, had accepted it.

The benchmark for success when the ten pilots were rolled out was to enrol at least 75 per cent of low-income first-time mothers.
