Central London Branch

Jan 10 2019

Welcome to the Central London Branch (CLB) page!

We are an affiliate branch of the UK's leading shared parenting charity, Families Need Fathers.

We provide help, advice and support for those that are dealing with children's matters before, during and after relationship breakdown. All are welcome - be they mothers, fathers or grandparents.

There is no cost for attending our meetings although we encourage everyone to buy a drink and spend some money at the bar and if possible make a small donation to FNF. We also request visitors to consider becoming members of FNF to help our organisation to keep going in especially difficult times for all.

Upcoming Meetings & Events

We meet online every Monday at 8:00pm (except Christmas and bank holidays). Please contact the branch to obtain Zoom meeting details.

The Solicitor clinic happens on the first Monday of every month, subject to solicitor availability and holidays.

We meet at The George pub, 1 D'Arblay St, Soho, London W1F 8DG, upstairs room (nearest station: Oxford Circus)

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this branch's meetings have moved online. Please check with the branch beforehand that the meeting is taking place and how to join.




If you have any queries, please contact Vincent on 07944 295 672 or John on 07387 022 313. Alternatively, email CLB.Meetings@fnf.org.uk. Please do not contact The George as they will not be able to help you.



All matters are discussed in complete confidence under the Chatham House Rule.


The format of the evening once introductions have been made is to first allow newcomers to explain their circumstances and invite opinions/advice from those present who can maybe apply their own experiences and opinions.


Newcomers are not obliged to speak and are welcome to observe – we like to provide a relaxed, pressure free forum for discussion.


We then throw open the floor for others to discuss their own ongoing situations be they asking for advice or announcing progress or good news.


In addition we are able to offer regular solicitor clinics – these are provided free of charge and are subject to a first come first served basis and held between 6pm-8pm prior to the start of the meeting. This service is provided by a London Family Law solicitor.
