The Family Justice Review interim report sets out proposals to tackle problems faced by the family justice system.The panel recommendations aim to bring greater coherence through organisational change and better management, make the system more able to cope with current and future pressures, reduce duplication of scrutiny and to divert more issues away from court. The panel's proposals aim to: 1) provide children, as well as adults, with an opportunity to have their voices heard in the decisions that will be made; 2) provide proper safeguards to ensure vulnerable children and families are protected; 3) enable and encourage out of court resolution, when this is appropriate; and 4) ensure there is proportionate and skilfully managed court involvement.
