Cafcass' annual Open Board Meeting will take place in Bristol on Friday 11 December 2009.

Speaking in advance of the event, Anthony Douglas, CBE, Cafcass' Chief Executive said, "The Open Board meeting is an invaluable opportunity for us to listen and respond to the views of the children and families we work with. It also allows us to give members of the public and stakeholders up-to-date information on our service and the ways in which we are all striving to improve. It is always a vibrant affair and I look forward to meeting this year's attendees." The meeting will take place at the Bristol Marriot Royal Hotel, Bristol from 10am to 2pm on Friday 11 December.
