For our column at Jordans this month, we offer a recap of the main events in Family Law and child welfare policy in 2016, and what we can expect from the year to come.

We look at the projects that made a difference to people’s lives, the consultations that were launched and the due dates for their publication; the changes at the nation’s Child Abuse Inquiry and the way the public fought to protect key resources like legal aid and Freedom Of Information requests.

Looking at 2017, we make some pessimistic predictions about how the child welfare sector will fare over the next 12 months, but we’d love to hear your predictions, too.

You can catch our piece over at Jordans.
