We believe that every family that could benefit from a Family Drug and Alcohol Court (FDAC) should be able to access one.
We can offer set up advice and support free of charge to all new FDACs. We can also provide induction training and mentoring. Our practice support offer describes in more detail the services we are funded to offer.
For practitioners, judges or commissioners who are interested in starting an FDAC, this guide is available, detailing the initial steps of establishing the model, including advice on engaging a wide variety of stakeholders.
All FDACs areas can benefit from being members of our FDAC community of practice. We support FDAC sites and practitioners to connect through national networking days and judicial and service manager forums and are providing regular practitioner bulletins, which identify, codify and share effective practice across the Family Justice system. You can sign up to our Family Justice bulletin here.
We are also working to promote the FDAC model and other models of problem-solving justice at the local and national level, bringing us into conversations with Whitehall, Westminster and local commissioners. We are delivery partners to the Department for Education’s Safeguarding Families, Investing in Practice funding programme and will be supporting all the existing sites to expand, and six new sites to be established, under this fund.
