The Government has appointed David Norgrove as the Chair of the new Family Justice Board. Mr Norgrove will oversee the Board which is a key part of the reforms announced in the Family Justice Review.
The Family Justice Review panel made a number of recommendations to Government to reform and strengthen the family justice system.
The Board is made up of senior figures representing the key organisations in the family justice system. The Board is focusing on reducing delay across the system, helping it prepare for the introduction of the statutory six month time limit in care cases. The Board will also work to build cross agency coherence, tackle variations in local performance, and ensure more private law cases are resolved out of court, where appropriate.
Family Justice Minister Jonathan Djanogly said: "I am pleased David Norgrove has been appointed as the Chair of the Family Justice Board. This will be a key role in starting the immediate work on reforming our system. This is no easy job and we fully recognise that achieving any significant change is far from simple.
"The reform of family justice is a critical priority for Government. Our reforms are ambitious and system-wide and particularly tackle the crucial problem of delay."
