New Cafcass office opens in Chesterfield

Cafcass has opened a specially designed office in Chesterfield to provide improved opportunities for interviewing families, family mediation and contact.

Anthony Douglas, Cafcass Chief Executive said: "We work with children in the family courts. Whether their parents are divorcing or separating or a child is going through care proceedings - it is a stressful time for all involved. So I am really pleased that we have been able to refurbish our offices to such a high standard.

"The new Chesterfield office will provide an environment better suited to delivering modern family services and opportunities for children and families to maintain contact. The project has been brought to fruition through the work of many colleagues and I would like to thank the Chesterfield team and business support colleagues, who worked tirelessly to make it happen."

The new development in Chesterfield provides quality facilities for interviewing children and families as well as improved accommodation and security for staff. The multi-purpose building is designed for modern ways of working, and includes areas for contact and managing dispute resolution. Facilities include a family room and two multi-use rooms and were designed to meet the needs of children and families.

Service Manager, Janice Ward said: "The refurbished Cafcass office in Chesterfield is evidence of our commitment to improving the experience children and families have of using our services. The new building has good public transport links and excellent disabled access as well as providing a modern working space for practitioners. The new offices are already having a positive impact on our work."
