Joint Agreement issued by Cafcass and President of the Family Division

This Agreement will last for 12 months and sets out measures which seeks to build on the inter-agency partnerships that have been established in many parts of the country between the Judiciary and local Cafcass offices. In particular, it seeks to continue to reduce backlogs which have fallen since the introduction of Interim Guidance.

The agreement has a four-fold purpose:

1. To build on the valuable inter-agency working which the Interim Guidance has produced;

2. To continue the reduction of backlogs in the allocation of public law guardians and prevent their recurrence where they have been eliminated;

3. To assist guardians to make the best use of their time, and;

4. To minimise the use of Cafcass nominated ‘duty advisers' except where the Designated Family Judge has agreed and published circumstances in which they may be used, and then to regulate such use.
