Putting children and young people first in the family courts


Towards Outstanding

When Ofsted inspected Cafcass in February 2014 Cafcass was rated Good with Outstanding Leadership

Cafcass has a strategic ambition to be recognised as an outstanding organisation. The most important motivation we have is to be ambitious for children and this means becoming outstanding for children.

To achieve this ambition we will:

  • Ensure that we make a difference in the lives of children and families. Impact and child outcomes are central to all we do.
  • Use data to better understand our use of resource and productivity and build on our current models of best practice.
  • Focus on outstanding practice & drive continuous improvement through our Learning and Development programme led by our Heads of Practice and Practice Supervisors.
  • Develop creatively our collaborative working relationships with stakeholders to improve outcomes for children in the national and local family justice system.

We need outstanding people to help us achieve our ambition and produce the best outcomes for children and young people, so if this is you, find out about how Cafcass can help with your work life balance, the opportunities for learning and development or rewards and benefits.
