Discrimination Complaints or Concerns Raised by Cafcass FCAs

The request was successful.

Dear Children and Family Court Advisory Support Service,

Family Court Advisers are Social Workers registered with the HCPC. The HCPC Standard of Conduct (http://www.hcpc-uk.org/publications/stan... requires social workers to:

"Challenge discrimination"
"1.5 You must not discriminate against service users, carers or colleagues by allowing your personal views to affect your professional relationships or the care, treatment or other services that you provide."
"1.6 You must challenge colleagues if you think that they have discriminated against, or are discriminating against, service users, carers and colleagues."

Discrimination is defined as:

"Discriminate"
"To unfairly treat a person or group of people differently from other people or groups of people. This includes treating others differently because of your views about their lifestyle, culture or their social or economic status, as well as the characteristics protected by law – age, disability, gender reassignment, race, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, religion or belief, sex and sexual orientation."

In the last year have any Cafcass FCAs raised any complaint or concern to challenge discrimination in:
1) "Resources for assessing domestic abuse" https://www.cafcass.gov.uk/grown-ups/pro...
2) "Resources for assessing harmful conflict" https://www.cafcass.gov.uk/grown-ups/pro...

How many such complaints or concerns have been raised by Cafcass staff?

Yours faithfully,

B Maloney
