Consultation began at the beginning of May 2006 on a new CAFCASS framework to safeguard and promote the welfare of children. The consultation period will run until 7 August 2006, with the new framework coming into effect in autumn 2006.

  • CAFCASS role as an agency responsible for safeguarding children and promoting their welfare;
  • working with children and families - child protection and risk assessment;
  • working together with other agencies; and
  • safeguarding its staff.
