Immediate release – 8th February 2013

Care application levels continue increasing

January 2013 statistics from Cafcass

In January 2013, Cafcass received a total of 960 applications. This is a 4% increase on January 2012 levels and is the fourth highest level of applications recorded in a single month this financial year.

From April 2012 onwards:

Between April 2012 and January 2013 Cafcass received a total of 9,112 applications. This figure is 7.8% higher when compared to the same period last year.

The 991 applications received in July 2012 were the highest ever recorded for a single month.

Applications received during all months bar June this financial year have been the highest ever recorded by Cafcass for these individual months.

The comparatively lower demand in June 2012 is believed to be due to the lack of working days available due to the special bank holidays this year.

During 2011-12, Cafcass received 10,244 new applications.

This figure is 11.2% higher when compared to previous financial year.
