Family Justice Board statement: Priorities for the family justice system

|Family Court|Statements|News

The Family Justice Board has produced a statement, that summarises the priority actions it intends to pursue in response both to immediate pressures within the family justice system, and to bring about longer-term reform.

Accompanying the statement are two further documents, presenting more detailed discussion of the priorities pertaining to public family law and private family law matters respectively.

These documents are being cascaded to professionals and practitioners working within the family justice system across England and Wales to raise awareness of the priorities identified by the Board. Further information will be cascaded in early January 2021, including details of national, regional and local implementation arrangements.
