Family justice system ‘damaging children’

Society and Culture

United Kingdom – Former senior civil servant David Norgrove found that cases take far too long and children are being damaged by the current system, described by the Law Society as a national disgrace.

Norgrove said with care and supervision cases now taking on average 56 weeks, and 61 weeks in care centres, “the life chances of already damaged children are further undermined by the very system that is supposed to protect them”.

He has called for a new Family Justice Service to be established, sponsored by the ministry of justice, with strong ties at both ministerial and official level with the department for education and the Welsh government.

He omits the fact that some of these children are not damaged, but are removed from the their parents anyway and then the process begins of turning happy well-adjusted children into vulnerable children.


These recommendations are tried and tested and not all of them do work, but many of them do.  In fact more abuses are promoted if a case is before a judge who favours a local authority, because of money.  The media are now instructed as to what they can report and in many instances certain judges do instruct the media to hide the truth.

The only way forward is accountablity. Particular judges who preside over family court proceedings are the crust of the many problems facing the family court system today.
