You've read the press release, now here's the video...

Following hot on the heels of their press release, the Ministry of Justice has published this video today, to coincide with the family justice reforms. The video is entitled 'Family mediation', although much of it is actually about the 26 week limit for care proceedings, rather than compulsory MIAMs. The video includes 'young people' talking of their personal experience of the system and how it works. Whilst we should, of course, listen carefully to what they have to say, I feel a little uncomfortable that they seem to be being used to promote Government policy.
