It’s great to hear news that children are finally to be given a voice in family court care proceedings. Read more here.
I was greatly impressed by members of the Family Justice Young Peoples Board (FJYPB) when I heard them speak at the FMC PPC Conference in December 2014, with particular reference to encouraging mediators to ensure that they open up mediation services to include children.
It seems that this development being announced today is largely thanks to their commitment to getting the voices of other children heard. Well done FJYPB and keep up the good work.
