Cafcass has a separate website

The Children and Family Court Advisory and Support Service (Cafcass) looks after the interests of children involved in family proceedings. It is independent of the courts and social services, but works under the rules of the Family Court and legislation to work with children and their families, and then advise the courts on what is considered to be in the best interests of individual children.

Cafcass is an executive non-departmental public body, sponsored by the Ministry of Justice.
