Family Information Services Survey 2015 - 2016

The Family Information Services Survey reports on the evolving role of Family Information Services and the pressures they face. Bringing together the voices of Family Information Services from across the country, the Survey maps the state of provision in the UK and highlights good practice.

Research revealed that while the number of enquiries to Family Information Services in England had more than doubled since 2014 to more than one million a year, the number of dedicated staff had fallen from an average full-time equivalent of 4.8 to 3.2 per council over the same period.
