CAFCASS budget for 2012-13 was confirmed in the remit letter of March 2012 and is as follows:

  Budget 2012-13 (£ million)
Programme 113.500
Admin 12.732
Depreciation 1.24
Total 127.472

No decision about future funding has yet been made. However, in light of the current climate, all Government spending is subject to regular review. The future staffing numbers will, to a large extent, depend on the budget for the service.
