Andrew Crumpton has been a trustee of Families Need Fathers for over a decade and has had several roles during that time including acting CEO, Vice Chair for many years and even a brief spell as Chair and managing trustee. He joined the board when he was asked by the then Chair John Baker to set up a national helpline following an offer by Channel 4 to publish our helpline number (which we didn’t have at that time). The rest as they say is history.

During the last decade, there has been a lot of changes within the Charity, and Andrew has witnessed and been part of them all. He has worked in the office, ran a branch for several years and supported individuals in numerous cases at different courts of all tiers.

Unfortunately despite supportive words from the Court of Appeal, he has lost contact with his eldest daughter, however he remains hopeful that she will one day choose to seek him out.

He is married and has a daughter and son at home. He works full time as a teacher in secondary school. His work as a teacher has reinforced his belief that children benefit from good quality contact with both parents and that a child’s welfare is best served by both parents working cooperatively together for their child’s best interests. This is where the work of Families Need Fathers can and does make a social Impact in addition to the valuable work done supporting families during separation.
