Family Public Law Reform – Training Packs

Family Public Law comes under The Children Act 1989 which allocate duties to local authorities, courts, parents and other agencies in the United Kingdom. The act seeks to ensure that children are safeguarded and that their welfare is promoted. It states that children's welfare should be of paramount concern to the courts.

The purpose of the project is to make the overall court process in relation to public law more efficient, ensuring the court, parties and their representatives have access to the right information at the right time to support the court in its role to decide on the best outcomes for the children involved in public law.

The main aims of the project are to:

  • Allow the local authority/legal representatives to start an application for a care, supervision or EPO online
  • Enable legal representatives to see the progress of the case and manage case management online
