The Care Proceedings Pilot aims to promote good decision making in the court and reduce unnecessary delay for children undergoing care proceedings. Evidence from the Family Justice Review and from local analysis indicates that care and supervision cases are taking longer to conclude.
 
Working together with the judiciary, the court services, Cafcass and other key stakeholders, the Tri-borough local authorities (Hammersmith and Fulham, Kensington and Chelsea, and Westminster) have begun a pilot project whose aim is to minimise unnecessary delay.  The Care Proceedings Pilot commenced on 1st April 2012 and will last for 12 months during which time it is estimated up to 100 cases will be heard.

Suitably qualified individuals and organisations with relevant experience are invited to apply for a contract to evaluate the pilot project with the purpose of measuring impact, and identifying the factors that have led to success or failure of the overall aims and various elements within the pilot.
