Family Justice Young People’s Board

The Family Justice Young People’s Board (FJYPB) involves a group of around 40 children and young people who have been through the family justice system or who have an interest in children’s rights and the family courts.

The Board’s remit is to help ensure that the work of the Family Justice Board is child centred and child-inclusive.

The Family Justice Young People’s Board (FJYPB) are looking for children and young people over the age of seven who have had experience of parental separation, living in care and care leavers.

Do you know of a young person that has experience of the family courts?

Attached is an advert / call for members for the FJYB from Cafcass for sharing with young people and relevant professional networks.
