Cafcass stands for Children and Family Court Advisory and Support Service.
Every year Cafcass helps over 140,000 children and young people who are going through care or adoption proceedings, or whose parents have separated and are unable to agree about future arrangements for their children. Cafcass is the voice of children in the family courts and helps to ensure that children’s welfare is put first during proceedings.
Cafcass is asked by the court to become involved in cases once an application has been made to the court. CAFCASS practitioners provide judges with the advice, information and recommendations they need to make a safe decision about each child’s future. This includes working with children to find out their wishes and feelings, and reporting these findings back to the court.
