Tri-borough care proceedings pilot publishes final outcomes

An updated evaluation of the Tri-borough care proceedings pilot has found that there were no significant differences between the pattern of final orders made on the cases in the pilot year, compared to the year before.

The Tri-borough care proceedings pilot was led by the London boroughs of Kensington and Chelsea, Hammersmith and Fulham, Westminster, working in conjunction with the courts and Cafcass. It ran from April 2012 to March 2013. It was a concerted effort to reduce the duration of care proceedings to 26 weeks, in advance of national moves in that direction.
