About Help & Support

image: help and support

If you are separating or divorced and are worried about not seeing your children - or worried about the effect the breakdown of your relationship might have on them, Families Need Fathers can provide you with the support and information you need.

Our services are open to mothers, fathers, grandparents, new partners and extended families. We are an organisation dedicated to helping parents and their families continue to provide the love, care and support that their children need after separation - and are there to support parents and families in doing this - especially if you are having problems in coming to an agreement on your own.

An informative starting point is our Read Me First section.

 

Support and information is available in a number of ways:

 

National Telephone Helpline - available from 9am - 10pm Monday to Friday, 10am - 3pm at weekends on 0300 0300 363.


Local Branch Meetings - where you can get face-to-face help, surrport and advice, discuss your situation with others in similar circumstances and join like-minded individuals in supporting each other


Expert Emotional Support - FNF is pleased to announce that Divorce Support Group is now offering expert emotional support in your locality. They offer individual, telephone or group counselling.
