East London Branch

Welcome to the East London Branch 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 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.

Pro bono solicitor advice is open to FNF Members during our meetings.

If you have any queries, please contact Ian on 07943 054 258. Please do not contact the venue 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.
