Care applications continue their upward trend

978 applications in July

Care application demand has remained at a very high level, Cafcass reports. Between April and July 2012 Cafcass received a total of 3,519 applications. This figure is 8.3% 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 980 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.
