§ Ms Rosie Winterton
The Children and Family Court Advisory and Support Service (CAFCASS) was launched in April 2001. CAFCASS estimates (subject to audit) that in the financial year 2001–02, it granted £268,000 to contact centres of which £57,000 was spent on supervised contact. In addition, it granted £211,000 to contact centres offering supported contact: some of this sum may also have been spent on supervised contact which was not separately differentiated in regional returns.
