Listening

This from Family Law Week

Emergency measures introduced to deal with backlogs and delays following an unprecedented rise in the number of child protection proceedings are posing new risks for already highly vulnerable children. That is the conclusion of Time for Children, a report published last week by Nagalro, the association for children’s guardians, children and family reporters, and independent social workers.

The voice of the child in care proceedings is being lost – over 80% of those who responded told Nagalro that they were now being instructed to prioritise tasks other than the core work which they want to do with and for the child.
