The secretive and unaccountable Cafcass (or Kafkass)in Birmingham and the Black Country has been given an inadequate rating by Ofsted . It was given the lowest score: Grade 4
The Birmingham and Black Country report itself says "The overall effectiveness of the service provided is inadequate. Crucially, some key services are not currently delivered to minimum standards. Performance is weak in meeting some statutory functions."
What both reports don't cover and is the human misery caused by these incompetent so-called 'public servants'. The families torn apart, the children who don't get to see their fathers (and in rare cases mothers) anymore and the general heartache of dealing with a secret state that does not care for the people they are entrusted (and paid well for) to look after and do their best for.
This is a true scandal and thousands of children and fathers in the Midlands are suffering because of it.
