Help FNF with research - It's quick, easy and valuable!

How much distress do men and women experience when going through a family separation?

Dr. John Barry of University College London is working in association with FNF to find out about the impact of family breakdown on wellbeing.

It is totally confidential and ethically approved, and the study will help to improve knowledge of what aspects of the breakdown cause the most stress e.g. family court hearings, child access etc. Whether you are a father or a mother, if you are still going through family separation and/or making arrangements for your children in family courts, through mediation or privately, then your participation would be welcome. The more people that take part the more persuasive the results will be.

The study will involve an online survey taking about 2 minutes to complete. It will be done several times over a year, so in total will take about one hour of your time over a 12 month period.

If you want to take part, please email Dr. Barry for further information, john.barry@ucl.ac.uk who will provide you with a code to activate https://tinyurl.com/yagzh8ca.

FNF is not only supporting this research but sponsoring it financially. The results of this study will be published and form part of a programme of work we will be doing to help policymakers make informed decisions when reforming family justice and other related policies, so please support it and share this with friends to whom it may be relevant.
