The UK's leading Shared Parenting charity

Welcome to Families Need Fathers

FNF is a charity chiefly concerned with the problems of maintaining a child's relationship with both parents during and after family breakdown. We offer information, advice and support services to help parents to achieve a positive outcome for their children. Our Forum and our network of over 50 UK Branches also offer the pro-bono guidance of solicitors and others familiar with the family courts.

See more information about our new website!

If you require detailed information or individual support for your case then please consider joining FNF - where as a member, you will gain access to our Forum in which experienced Volunteers, including solicitors and McKenzie Friends can answer your questions.  Another option is for you to visit your nearest FNF Branch where meetings are run by experienced and knowledgeable Volunteers who are ready to help you.  Some of the more established branches run solicitors' clinics for the benefit of our members.  We also have a telephone Helpline which can provide a more general form of support.

Membership of FNF costs £39 (or less if you opt for recurring payments).  This is less than a few minutes of a typical solicitor's time - and it lasts for a year - It could save you a fortune!   Why not join now? Not only are you very likely to quickly appreciate the value of the information and support that we provide, but you will be contributing to enabling FNF to help many more who may be in a similar position to you.  Please consider this carefully.  Thank you.
