So how on earth can this 'alleged' Independent Court Advisory Service possibly know how efficient, effective and trustworthy it is if it fails to collate on a national basis expressed Court concerns? It is, of course, not surprising as CAFCASS continues to cut back its work - many years now since it got rid of all of its Family Support Workers. CAFCASS seems to be as secret as the Family Courts it services. It is a great shame that its Chairperson, an appointed member of the House of Lords, sees fit to occupy that position and defend CAFCASS when she knows that there are serious failings.

Part of the challenge is to shed some light on all of this.
