Parental Alienation - FNF Highlighted on Radio 4's Woman's Hour

Parental Alienation Discussed on BBC Radio 4's Woman's Hour

Families Need Fathers are Mentioned

BBC's Woman's Hour on 26th April broadcast an excellent discussion portraying the grim reality of Parental Alienation following publication of a judgement (Re MFS (Appeal: Transfe r of Primary Care) [2019] EWHC 768 (Fam)) where a child whose primary care was reversed.

The programme also highlighted FNF's involvement on International Parental Alienation Awareness Day, following a march from the Royal Courts of Justice to Downing Street organised, we understand, by an alienated mother and supported by us.

The discussion starts just over half an hour into the programme. Jenny Murray interviews barrister Paula Rhone-Adrien and psychotherapist (and former lawyer) Charlotte Friedman. At Downing Street ,Andrew Bridgen MP made a powerful speech calling for parental alienation to be recognised as a criminal offence and Welsh Assembly Member, Neil McEvoy also delivered a strong statement of support. Woman's Hour have invited listeners to contact them if they are affected by the issues discussed at Please feel free to copy us at Many thanks to all those who attended. There were some moving moments as parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles wrote their messages of love to alienated childrren in chalk on Trafalgar Square.
