2024 will be an unhappy New Year for 225 children a day – minimum*.
The days following the Christmas/New Year holidays are the worst for this. Possibly two in five parental separations happen – or are announced – at this time. There is another, but not so sharp, peak after the summer holidays.
There will be an increased need for our services, but only noticeable after a delay. The immediate effect on excluded parents -overwhelmingly but not exclusively fathers - is paralysis and shock. This takes some time to recover from. It is often even longer for them to realise that their children are not going to be allowed to see them much or even at all.
