Much has been written and said about the Children and Families Act 2014 from its fledgling beginnings as the Green Paper, up to the Royal assent in March and now during the implementation phase. The NNPCF Steering Group felt that it is now appropriate to properly establish our views about the Act. This we hope will help Forums with their own local work, but also clarify with others how we see the involvement of Parent Carers and Forums in this important phase of the process.
