Family Drug and Alcohol Court (FDAC) to be opened in more areas of England

London has had a Family Drug and Alcohol Court for seven years, and courts have opened more recently in Gloucestershire and Milton Keynes. More will now open in areas including East Sussex, Kent and Medway, Plymouth, Torbay and Exeter, and West Yorkshire. Funding for the expansion will be provided by the Department for Education.

The London FDAC only sits once a week, and deals with a relatively small number of cases, about 30 a year at the moment.
