Two years, too long: Mapping action on the Harm Panel’s findings
This report was launched to mark the second anniversary of the publication of the Ministry of Justice expert Harm Panel’s report. It aims to map the progress that has occurred over the last two years to learn from the panel’s findings and implement its recommendations. The report also discusses the work that remains to be done, informed by contributions of survivors of domestic abuse who have been in private law children proceedings in the family courts since 2020. The report ends with a call to action and recommendations on the urgent changes that remain outstanding and must be made if the family courts are to be safe, trauma informed and just spaces for survivors of domestic abuse and their children.
