Justice for Families Coordinating Campaign
There are a number of UK strands of campaigning that are happening in this area of public law. I am working with people in a number of different areas with the objective of ensuring that effective campaigning is coordinated. These are my reports identifying any campaigning issues, what is happening in those areas. Please note that I am happy to work with any organisation looking to improve procedures in the area of Public Family Law. (The law relating to Child Protection and Adoption).

Family Court Secrecy
Many people will know of the difficulties that have historically been caused by secrecy in the Family Courts. There have been three recent changes that are of significance in this area. I would ask that they email me at:  and explain their interest in the subject. Justice for Families Coordinating Campaign.

Adoption Targets: The government's plan to in-crease adoptions was flawed from the start. It is very difficult to successfully adopt a child older than 5. Hence the pressure to increase adoptions applies mainly on younger children.

In 1995 2,870 children under 5 were taken into care and 910 children under five adopted from care (32%). In 2006 4,160 children under 5 were taken into care and 2,190 children under 5 adopted which is over 60%. For the government to achieve their target almost all of the children taken into care under 5 have to be adopted a ludicrous objective.
