For our thirteenth Voice of the Child podcast, we talk with a mother who has experienced three remote hearings during the Coronavirus lockdown, and her McKenzie Friend Anne Neale, who is also the spokesperson for Legal Action for Women.

In this episode, we look at how these hearings are conducted, the ethical and human rights concerns they raise, and we discuss the Nuffield Foundation’s newly published review on remote family court hearings.

Many thanks to the mother (who uses a pseudonym during the interview), and to Anne for taking part in this podcast.
