The Nuffield Foundation has launched a new survey today which hopes to collect in-depth information about remote court hearings in family cases.

The survey, which asks for practitioners inside the sector to share their views, also has a dedicated section for parents.

The home page for the survey explains that the consultation aims to understand better “how family justice practice has been shaped by COVID-19 – how approaches have changed, where this has resulted in positive practice innovation and what challenges and difficulties have emerged.”

Nuffield has enlisted the help of the Parents, Families and Allies Network (PFAN) to process the responses submitted by parents. PFAN, is lead by emeritus professor of social work, Andy Bilson and Taliah Drayak.

The survey comes after the foundation carried out a rapid response consultation on remote hearings in the family courts.

The consultation will remain open until 30th September, 2020.
