The UK's leading Shared Parenting charity

Familes Need Fathers Charter

 

The Families Need Fathers Charter outlines the key principles which underpin the work of the charity, and on which we campaign.

Updated in June 2015, The Charter covers five key principles:

• No child should be denied a full and loving relationship with both their parents unless it has been proven that such a relationship presents a risk to the child;

• The family justice system should promote collaboration and shared parenting between parents following separation;

• Family courts need to respond swiftly to breaches of Child Arrangement Orders, to ensure that relationships between children and the parent they do not live with day-to-day are not compromised;

• Information and support services should be easily accessible for separated parents throughout the different pathways of the family justice system;

• The important contribution of fathers, mothers, grandparents and the wider family should be promoted wherever possible, in both family policy and wider society.

We have developed more detailed points to pursue these, which form the basis of much of our work on these principles. They are outlined in our 'Families Need Fathers Charter 2015' document, which can be downloaded below:
