Putting children and young people first in the family courts


Updating the Cafcass Operating Framework


Cafcass is updating its Operating Framework.


The Cafcass Operating Framework was first introduced in 2012, to set out what we do and how we use our resources effectively and proportionately. This helps us to provide a consistent service to the children and families referred to us.  


The updated Operating Framework reflects current working practices and the developments in our work since the Framework was last updated in 2014, with a focus on continuous improvement. This focus includes boxes at the start of each chapter, setting out our ambitions and suggesting what ‘outstanding’ practice might look like.


Follow the link to view the Operating Framework. We welcome comments from stakeholders and other interested parties, ahead of the full launch in August. Please send any feedback to webenquiries@cafcass.gsi.gov.uk by 12pm on Monday 31 July.
