Care applications in April to August reach unprecedented levels

Cafcass care demand statistics for August 2012 published

Care application demand has remained at a very high level. Between April and August 2012 Cafcass received a total of 4,489 applications. This figure is 8.5% higher when compared to the same period last year. Applications received during all months bar June this financial year have been the highest ever recorded by Cafcass for these individual months, with the 982 applications received in May 2012 being the highest ever recorded for a single month. The comparatively lower demand in June 2012 is believed to be due to the lack of working days available due to the special bank holidays this year.
