Care applications to Cafcass remain high

The latest care statistics from the Children and Family Court Advisory and Support Service (Cafcass) have revealed that the number of care applications continue to remain high.


For the period April 2011 to January 2012, there were 8,403 new applications to Cafcass, an increase of 12.4% over the same period last year.

During January 2012 there were 903 care applications – the highest number ever recorded in a single month.

Anthony Douglas, Chief Executive of Cafcass said,  “Agencies are working more quickly to ensure that children are removed from deeply damaging households where many have been for some time and are showing a lower tolerance for poor parenting. What we are seeing is an elimination of drift in neglect cases and a greater recognition of the appalling impact of neglect can have on children.”
