The Royal Borough will use the money to overhaul social care for armed forces families in Windsor and Pakistani-Mirpuri families in Maidenhead.
The aim is to create more tailored and culturally sensitive services, with the hope to reduce the need for intervention, helping families to thrive and keeping them together.
Children and Families Minister Edward Timpson said: “As a family barrister for over ten years, I know there isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach to helping some of the most troubled families – they need the tailored support that is right for them and that will help get their lives back on track as and when they need it.
“By focusing on the needs of these vulnerable families in Windsor and Maidenhead, the scheme will deliver real results for local families and I’m excited to see where this project leads.”
The scheme is one of the latest projects that have successfully bid for money through the government’s Innovation Programme.
This programme focuses on two target areas, which are new ways of working in children’s social work and better support for young people in or on the edge of care.
More than 50 street parties are set to take place this weekend across the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead and the surrounding areas.
An independent report into a Conservative councillor has found a breach of the Royal Borough’s code of conduct in a document seen by the Advertiser.
