New podcast explores topics in recent report on recurrence by the Nuffield Family Justice Observatory

What Lies Behind the Statistics – New podcast on what more the family justice system can do to prevent, rather than entrench women’s vulnerability, given new findings about persistently high rates of recurrent care proceedings.

The new podcast series “What Lies Behind the Statistics?” has been produced by researchers in the Family Justice Data Partnership (Universities of Lancaster and Swansea) who use large-scale anonymised data to ask pressing questions about family justice.

The first episode features Prof Karen Broadhurst speaking to Cecily Atkinson (mother and doctoral student at Lancaster) who shares her views on what more the family justice system can do to support mothers involved in recurrent care proceedings. You can listen to the podcast here.

This podcast is informed by the recently published report Mothers in recurrent care proceedings: New evidence for England and Wales – published by the Nuffield Family Justice Observatory.
