Welcome to the Ipswich 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 buy a drink and spend some money at the bar and if possible 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.
Upcoming Meetings & Events
Due to Covid-19, these branch meetings have been suspended.
We meet from 6:30-8:30pm on the second Monday of every month
We meet at The Dencora Business Centre in Ipswich. Please check the Upcoming Events for any last-minute changes.
If you have any queries, please contact Andrew on 07798 640 022 or Victoria on 07764 844 194. Alternatively, email Ipswich.Meetings@fnf.org.uk. 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.
