Date:8 MAR 2006

Alison Paddle, Solicitor, Chair, NAGALRO Council. The Children and Family Court Advisory and Support Service (CAFCASS) consultation on its paper 'Every Day Matters: New Directions for CAFCASS' has just finished and has generated many responses.

The responses from CAFCASS practitioners identify significant concerns about these proposals for an organisation that is still suffering the consequences of its over-hasty and poorly planned beginnings. See April [2006] Fam Law 323 for the full article.
