Thank you to our Family Court Section members who contributed to our submission for the review of the reconfiguration of band 8 roles (Assistant Service Manager and Consultant Family Court Advisor).
We sent our paper to Cafcass Senior Leaders ahead of our Partnership meeting with them on the Monday 2nd October 2023. Cafcass Senior Leaders thanked us for our paper and confirmed that this will be considered as part of their formal review of the reconfiguration of Band 8 roles. We were told that the outcome of this review will be completed and reported upon in November 2023.
If you have had your ASM confirmation period extended (beyond 6 months) due to factors outside of your control, please can you contact us as it has been agreed that we can raise your circumstances directly with Cafcass Senior Leaders.
