High demand requires exceptional collaboration between local authorities and Cafcas

“A new agreement launched by ADCS and Cafcass aims to strengthen the ways in which social workers work together for children facing the care system.

At a time when demand levels for care proceedings remain high, ADCS and Cafcass have agreed how social workers in both local authorities and those acting as guardians in family proceedings can better work together during care proceedings and pre-proceedings in the family courts.

The agreement, which was launched on 10th February, confirms a ‘culture of urgency’ for children and young people. It acknowledges the pressure on the care system and sets out how local authorities and Cafcass aim to work together to secure swift outcomes for children, young people and their families. It also recognises the distinct role social workers and guardians play and provides a framework for resolving disputes between professionals.

The agreement applies to both care proceedings and work to divert cases away from court, where this is the right thing to do for a child.”

One thought on “High demand requires exceptional collaboration between local authorities and Cafcas

  1. When we have at least 80% of care applications successful, resulting in children removed to a not fit for purpose care system, do we really need all these bodies being paid well to rubber stamp a ‘culture of urgency’ ?

    We must ask why adoption/fostering has been effectively the flag ship policy of Blair and Cameron, and why courts are and have particularly for the past 20 years decided placing in an unfit care system, is indeed in a child’s best interests or now in their ‘welfare’.

    We must also ask why from 700 per month in 2010 care applications are up to over 1600 per month.

    And why other than Portugal we are the only country to deracinate children from their own flesh and blood for ever ,often with few decent outcomes which are not checked.
