Exploring the use of the Family Drug and Alcohol Court (FDAC) in public children law cases
The Family Drug and Alcohol Court (FDAC) represents an alternative, and often more successful problem-solving approach to public children law cases which centres around asking parents, who have put their children at risk, which problems they would like to address. This therapeutic approach revolves around 4 main areas of concern; drug and alcohol abuse, domestic abuse, mental health problems, and severe poverty.
During this bite-size session, Datalaw staple Safda Mahmood will provide viewers with an invaluable insight, or reminder for those in practice, as to how the FDAC operates in practice.
Safda will examine how the FDAC is different to other forms of public children law cases and how the use of the FDAC in care cases has developed.
Consideration will also be given to the position regarding timescales and how the FDAC works with the 26-week timetable will also be explored.
