CAFCASS

Children and Family Court Advisory and Support Service (CAFCASS) is the Government agency responsible for Reporting Officers, Children's Guardians and other Court officers appointed by the Court in Court Proceedings involving children.

In addition, where a parent wishes to consent to a child's placement for adoption or give advance consent to a child's adoption, the adoption agency must request CAFCASS to appoint an officer to witness the consent, having first ensured that it is given with full understanding of its implications.
