The Autumn Statement promises better support for people with multiple and complex needs. Responding to the recommendations of the Service Transformation Challenge Panel, the government will look to develop and extend the principles of the Troubled Families programme to other groups of people with complex needs from the next Spending Review. To move in this direction, the government will:

••Complete analysis on the costs and outcomes of key groups of people with multiple needs suggested by the Panel, and the evidence around the best way to help them

••Review the nature of the funding available for service transformation, with a view to improving incentives in future

••Look at how best to align inspection and accountability regimes so that they encourage services to integrate around people with multiple needs

••Explore options to stimulate innovation to take advantage of the latest digital techniques; this will include implementing digital tools to improve service outcomes and accessibility for local people and enable organisations to deliver services more efficiently

••Publish local service budgets for 2015-16 on a single webpage in December 2014
