Dear Ministry of Justice,
I refer you to this article:
/The Children and Family Court Advisory and Support Service (Cafcass) is a non-departmental public body for England set up to safeguard and promote the welfare of children involved in family court proceedings. It was formed on 1 April 2001 under the provisions of the Criminal Justice and Court Services Act 2000 and is accountable to Parliament through the Ministry of Justice. Cafcass is independent of the courts, social services, education and health authorities and all similar agencies./
May I then ask why Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust in partnership with CORAM have confirmed they are working in partnership with CAFCASS here: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/d...
When they are required to by statute to be independent of the courts, social services, education and health authorities and all similar agencies?
