Many parents going through family court proceedings after being in a domestic abuse situation find themselves and their children at further risk. The Government agreed to a public inquiry but it doesn’t go far enough to include CAFCASS, who are meant to act on behalf of the children. Often unsupervised contact is granted or the abuse continues. This has to change.

Please sign and share this petition.

There is a national campaign at the moment #thecourtsaid to highlight what happens with CAFCASS and domestic abuse situations in family court. It is backed by celebrities, Women’s Aid and other professionals. Would be great if you could attend and/or spread the word. Discounted travel is available but needs to be booked by the 5 October.
