Cafcass agree temporary process as DAPPs impacted and significant backlogs

Date:14 MAY 2021
Third slide
The Children and Family Court Advisory and Support Service (Cafcass) has published an update regarding the significant backlogs caused by working constraints of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic in the family justice system. Provisions of the Domestic Abuse Perpetrator Programmes (DAPPs) has been impacted due to the necessary face-to-face delivery model and a few DAPP providers have had to reduce or suspend their offers. Cafcass has considered the development of remote DAPPs, however there is a lack of evidence to support the adoption of a remote model. A temporary process has been agreed to which will be applied in England.

Cafcass has announced that the implementation of the temporary process will allow new referrals for DAPPs to be made, however only in cases where necessary and having regard to the delay the order will cause. These temporary arrangements will be kept under review and Cafcass anticipates that DAPP provision will be reinstated when the system recovers.
