Cafcass Prioritisation Protocol

The Association of Lawyers for Children has been contacted by Jacky Tiotto, CEO of Cafcass, to advise it that Cafcass is close to triggering the use of its prioritisation protocol in the region that includes South Yorkshire and Humberside. In summary Cafcass has had to develop this protocol to enable it to prioritise the most urgent incoming work should there be too many open active cases to allocate to Cafcass social workers. The national family justice recovery group, including senior judges, HMCTS, MOJ, DfE, Cafcass, Cafcass Cymru and ADCS have all been through its development and sign off.
