In March 2014, Cafcass received a total of 3,676 new private law cases. This is a 7% decrease on March 2013 levels.  

Between April 2013 and March 2014 Cafcass received a total of 46,495 new private law cases. While this figure shows an increase of 2% from the 45,605 cases received in the same period last year, the rate of increase has slowed down in recent months. Demand for all months from October 2013 onwards was lower than the same months in the previous financial year.

The figures can be viewed on the Cafcass website.
