FJYPB shortlisted for the Family Justice Award at the CYP Now Awards 2021
Congratulations to the Family Justice Young People’s Board (FJYPB) who have been shortlisted for the Family Justice Award at the CYP Now Awards 2021, which is due to take place on 25 November.
The FJYPB have been shortlisted for raising the awareness of the impact of domestic abuse on children and young people and the increased risk due to COVID-19.
The Family Justice Award was created to honour the memory of District Judge Nicholas Crichton, who pioneered the creation of family drug and alcohol courts to tackle parental substance misuse in care proceedings. The award is for the initiative that has done the most to help families avoid disputes and resolve problems. The judges will look for examples of innovation, in particular where families have played a key role in developing the initiative.
We wish the Family Justice Young People’s Board the best of luck at the awards!
