Family Court Goes Nationwide

A pioneering Family Court is to be extended across England with the help of £2.5m in Government Funding. The Family Drug and Alcohol Court, set up in 2008, in London by District Judge Nicholas Crichton aims to tackle parental substance misuse when it is a key element in local authority decisions to bring care proceedings. The Department for Education funding will enable the National FDAC Development Unit to create specialised drug and alcohol courts across England. [Courtesy: The Law Society Gazette]
