Excellent new guide available for young people
News story on the BBC News site:
children's guide to family justice published
Children in England and Wales are being asked for their views on how to improve the family law system so they have a greater voice if their parents split.
A new guide, drawn up by the children's rights director specifically for young people, tells them how to give opinions on how they should be treated.
The comments will be fed into the government's current review of the family justice system.
The review's chairman, David Norgrove, said it was vital children had a voice.
"The publication of the Young Person's Guide gives them this opportunity and the panel will carefully consider what they say," he said.
"Our recommendations aim to bring children to the forefront by creating greater coherence through organisational change and better management, making the system more able to cope with current and future pressures and diverting more issues away from court where appropriate."
