CoramBAAF commissioned to undertake a rapid review on Special Guardianship

  • Date:

The Nuffield Family Justice Observatory has commissioned CoramBAAF to undertake a rapid review on Special Guardianship to support the Family Justice Council as it seeks to revise the protocols and guidance for the family courts and local authorities. 

The rapid evidence review will include a review of published evidence and also practitioner perspectives on current obstacles to the implementation of existing guidance and protocols. The evidence will be drawn together in a single accessible document with a target date of February 2019.

John Simmonds, our Director of Policy, Research and Development, will lead the review of the evidence and has been invited to join the panel established by the Family Justice Council led by Mr Justice David Williams and HHJ Jane Probyn, to ensure continuity across elements of this work.
