Child Maintenance Future Priorities

the Child Maintenance and Enforcement Commission (CMEC) has published its Delivery Plan for 2011/12

The Commission's Delivery Plan for 2011/12 sets out the achievements and highlights from 2010/11 and our priorities for the year ahead.  The plan also lays out the performance indicators that the Commission is proposing to use, which replace the ministerial targets used in previous years.

In the report, the new CMEC chief executive comments: "during 2011/12 the Commission will test a set of interventions to help parents make family-based arrangements and also consider child maintenance in the context of wider issues faced at separation, through the Child Maintenance Options service. This will provide evidence on what works, to inform the development of integrated family support services in the future."

This intention seems good, but we will reserve judgement until there is a clearer indication of how ii will be done, given past failures in this area.  FNF Scotland will be taking part in a Scottish stakeholder meeting with CMEC shortly, let us know if you have any issues to be raised.
