Putting children and young people first in the family courts



Leaflets and resources


Our leaflets are designed to provide information to our service users, and inform our stakeholders.

There are a number of facsheets for adults about the different types of cases that we work on. There is also information for children, explaining who we are and what we do.

Professionals can use our resources to work with children whose families are in the family courts.
