Cafcass applications rise

Care applications have reached record levels, according to figures released by Cafcass, the organisation that looks after children in the family courts.

Care demand for March 2010 was up by more than a third on the previous year. There has also been a 16 per cent increase in divorce and separation cases. Chief executive, Anthony Douglas said the increase had “placed all of us working in the care system under pressure”.
