Lee joined Families Need Fathers in 2009 and attended branch meetings to try to ensure that his daughter was able to have a full relationship with her paternal family. In 2010 because of the valuable support received at the branch meetings Lee began volunteering for FNF as an Outreach Volunteer at the Liverpool office shortly before funding for this came to an end. Lee has been involved in fundraising for FNF including volunteering at Glastonbury to raise money, supermarket bag packing and through being sponsored to complete a half marathon for Families Need Fathers. Lee began volunteering on the FNF national helpline in 2011 and continues to volunteer taking calls on the local branch helpline.

Lee comes from a professional background in accountancy and finance, and also in quality and risk management, he is a fluent Spanish speaker and had been working overseas for 4 years before returning to the UK to ensure that his daughter was able to see him after separating from his daughter’s mother. Lee became a Trustee of Families Need Fathers in 2011 and as well as sitting on the national council has sat on various subcommittees in relation to his professional experience.

Lee occasionally acts as a volunteer McKenzie Friend to help people and to use his experience of the family courts in a positive way, and because he is a firm believer in Families Need Fathers and the importance to children of maintaining proper family relationships - because both parents matter.
