We improve the lives of children and families by putting data and evidence at the heart of the family justice system.


What do we know about children in the family justice system?

Our quarterly infographic pulls together what we know, and what we don’t know, about children’s journeys through the family justice system from national data.

Looking for advice?

We aren’t able to provide support or offer advice in individual cases in the family justice system but here you can view the organisations that can help.

About Nuffield Family Justice Observatory

We are an independent body, funded by the Nuffield Foundation.

The Nuffield Family Justice Observatory exists to find and fill the gaps in our understanding of the family justice system, highlight the areas where change will have the biggest impact, and foster collaboration to make that change happen.
