Cafcass looks after the interests of children involved in family proceedings. We work with children and their families, and then advise the courts on what we consider to be in the best interests of individual children.

Company description
We operate within the law set by Parliament and under the rules and directions of the family courts. Our role is to safeguard and promote the welfare of children, give advice to the family courts, make provision for children to be represented, provide information, advice and support to children and their families. The main types of cases in which the courts ask Cafcass to help are when parents or carers are separating or divorcing and have not reached agreement about arrangements for their children, social services have become involved and children may be removed from their parents’ care for their safety or children could be adopted.

Absolutely dreadful! Our first Cafcass officer was a friend of the respondent's family, yet still worked under this conflict of interest. The replacement wrote a report hat clearly listed serious safeguardin concerns, then recommended my daughter return to the shared care of her abuser. This officers' name is B****** T*****! Last week he invited me for a private hat and asked me to withdraw my complaint about his report, because I refused on the grounds that he had written a blatantly biased report, he reported to his managers that my McKenzie friend had been abusive!! Suddenly Cafcass are refusing to investigate his conduct.. HOW VERY CONVENIENT! Do NOT trust any Cafcass officer, ever! oh, FYI, B****** T***** has previous for this. He was disciplined by circuit judge Owen in 2015 for providing false testimony and concealing evidence. Yet he's still allowed to continue??
