  • We've been asked to help find "non-resident" parents for a housing survey for a Cambridge Uni housing research project. It is not our research, but interviewees will receive a £20 voucher, and the research will be shared with us. Best call soon as they only need 20 participants, based anywhere in the UK, so please get in touch quickly as it will be first come first serve. Here's the deal: Can you help with a Cambridge University survey in return for a £20 Love2shop voucher? The university wants to speak to single parents, aged 35 or under, who live with their children less than half of the time. The researchers need to speak to parents who have their child to stay with them for at least one night a fortnight, or would if they had suitable accommodation. Participants must have children under 18 and must not be living with a partner to qualify. A researcher will call you to conduct a short telephone survey – that’s all you need to do. All of your answers would be confidential and data kept anonymous. If you can help with this research project, please get in touch on 01638 741830 or tania@spirusmarketing.com
  • SIR JAMES MUNBY CALLS FOR MORE ACTION TO TACKLE PARENTAL ALIENATION At our conference in Bristol on Saturday 18th March Sir James Munby, President of the Family Division stated that 'We must recognise Parental Alienation openly and clearly'. Sir James later went on to say: 'Parental Alienation is a reality - judges recognise that' The President also went on to say that 'steps must be taken to tackle this (Parental Alienation). Responding to a question put by FNF Trustee Paul Apreda, Sir James thanked the charity for tabling 'very helpful' specific proposals for a Practice Direction on Parental Alienation. He undertook to respond substantively on the document by the end of the Easter break. We are delighted that Sir James has spoken out in such a direct and clear way on Parental Alienation. We hope that the UK Government will listen carefully and take steps to ensure that PA is recognised as a form of cruelty and coercive control which can no longer be tolerated nor swept under the carpet. Even after separation, parenthood is a job for both parents and their families to do their best to work together.
