The Working for Families Fund (WFF) contributed to the Scottish Government?s commitment to: tackling poverty and disadvantage, by improving rates of employment and economic activity and: eradicating child poverty within a generation. In April 2008 WFF funding was streamlined into the Fairer Scotland Fund (FSF), which replaced WFF and six previous funds as part of the Government?s budget concordat with local government. The data for this report were primarily gathered by the projects at the time of the registration of a client and then continuously through face-to-face meetings and sometimes by telephone until 2008 (unless contact was lost).

Considerable governmental and other secondary data and information were also analysed.
