Family Justice Board publishes Annual Report and Action Plan

Are the contents any more inspiring than the covers?

The Family Justice Board has published its Annual Report for 2012-13 and its 'Action Plan to Improve the Performance of the Family Justice System 2012-15'.

The Report sets out the Board's "activities and achievements during its first year of operation", including performance against five 'Key Performance Measures' ('KPMs'), such as duration of care cases and the effectiveness of publicly-funded mediation.

The Action Plan "sets out the actions the Board and its partners are undertaking to achieve the government’s vision of a family justice system that supports the delivery of the best possible outcomes for all children who come into contact with it". The Plan itself is set out in a table ('Table A') which details each action and for that action the relevant KPMs, 'key deliverables', the delivery date and the lead organisation and main supporting partners.

The Report can be found here, and the Plan here. Just one word of warning - be prepared not only for initialisms but also the usual jargon and neologisms that all such documents seem required to contain these days.
