We Believe Both Parents Matter...

Too many children grow up knowing only one parent. This must change.

Appointing a Minister for Men and Boys

Appointing a Minister for Men and Boys to the front bench of the UK Government is crucial for addressing issues that disproportionately impact or exclusively involve men.

This strategic move acknowledges the unique challenges faced by men in various aspects of society. One primary focus area is male health issues, where targeted policies and initiatives can promote overall well-being. Suicide prevention efforts can be enhanced through a dedicated minister, addressing the alarming rates of male suicides.

In education, the Minister can work towards improving outcomes for boys, ensuring that they receive the support needed to excel academically.

Tackling rough sleeping is another key priority, as men constitute a significant portion of the homeless population. The criminal justice system can benefit from a specialized approach to address male-specific concerns, reducing recidivism and promoting rehabilitation.

Moreover, the Minister for Men and Boys can advocate for the rights and support of male victims of violent crime, fostering a more inclusive approach to victim services. By recognising and addressing these issues through a dedicated ministerial position, the UK government can demonstrate a commitment to equality and holistic social progress.

” I don’t know how I would have coped without the Shared Parenting knowledge and empowerment from the peer support of FNF. Women are welcome in most settings. ”

Families Need Fathers Testimonials - What Our Service Users Say

” FNF taught me about the realities of the UK Family Court system at a time when I was very vulnerable and in need of guidance. Their ‘Surviving Separation’ course is excellent. ”

Families Need Fathers Testimonials - What Our Service Users Say

” The only charity to support any parent or grandparent to regain contact with their child or children, I regularly attend the Manchester group once a month to provide support. ”

Families Need Fathers Testimonials - What Our Service Users Say

” Without this group I would have been lost. I am the grandmother of a son who had his children taken away by the mother and false allegations submitted to ensure no contact. It has been heart breaking but reading the stories, being part of a community and having access to meetings gives information, advice and the hope and knowledge that it can change. I will keep supporting my son and grandchildren so they are together in the future. ”

Families Need Fathers Testimonials - What Our Service Users Say

” Families Need Fathers is an inclusive organisation that supports mothers, fathers, and ultimately children. I have personally found their support to be invaluable and truly believe it has saved my life and helped me become a stronger, resilient, and positive human being, father, and husband. They have educated and coached with my own personal development, positive co-parenting, positive parenting, and Family Court and the legal/court process. In that order. The peer-to-peer support is unmatched…I’ve never experienced a more active and supportive group of individuals brought together by a single goal – Happy Families! ”
