The legal framework of family justice in England and Wales is strong. Its principles are right, in particular the starting point that the welfare of children must be paramount. Every year 500, 000 parents and children are involved in the system. But the system is under great strain: cases take far too long (the average case took 53 weeks in 2010); too many private law disputes end up in court; the system lacks coherence; there is growing mistrust leading to layers of checking and scrutiny; little mutual learning or feedback; a worrying lack of IT and management information. The Review's recommendations aim: to bring greater coherence through organisational change and better management; making the system more able to cope with current and future pressures; to reduce duplication of scrutiny to the appropriate level; and to divert more issues away from the courts. The chapters of the review cover: the current system; the proposed Family Justice Service; public law; private law; financial implications and implementation; and there are eighteen annexes. The proposals are now out for consultation, with the final report due in autumn 2011.three other reviews.15 ln Wales, lntegrated Family Support Services are a tool in the Child Poverty Strategy to deliver integrated services around families.16 The effectiveness of the current system 2.27 We have been impressed by the dedication and capability of ... first report published in January 2011 www.dwp. steps.pdf last accessed 28/03/1 1 , and Dame Clareanbsp;...
