Dear Governance,

1.aSince October 2018 and the rollout of CAFCASS amended framework has it been the role of any FCA to have the “complex task of ‘assessing’ whether allegations made within these proceedings are true, exaggerated or fabricated to inform decision making of the court”

b. If the phrase has been removed would CAFCASS FCA’s also be expected not to undertake this in their work with families to accurately reflect the removal of the phrase i.e does its removal reflect FCA practice

or

2. Is the task of assessing whether allegations made in proceedings the role of the court

Yours sincerely,
