There have been no ministerial visits made to Family Drug and Alcohol Court (FDAC) teams in the last twelve months. Whilst there have been no ministerial visits to FDAC teams in the past 12 months, the government’s Supporting Families: Investing in Practice programme is currently investing over £17 million to enable local authorities to adapt one of three successful targeted Innovation Programme projects that have the strongest evidence of successfully keeping families together. Local authorities will be supported to embed one of three models and one of these models is FDACs. Expressions of Interest were invited from all local authorities. The successful local authorities for FDACs were announced on 9 August 2019. Local authorities will be ready to start on 1 April 2020 and evaluation will take place over a two-year period. Findings are scheduled to be published in Summer 2022.
