Father's Day 2016
Father’s Day, like all special days for children is a sensitive and difficult day for dads who are unable to spend it with their children due to their ex-partner’s failure to put the interests of their children above their own.
Of course, Father’s Day is primarily a day for the children when they can focus on their dads, express their love and affection, and acknowledge that he is part of their identity in a way that is unique.
We hope that children will be spending time with their dad or marking the day in some other way. If they are not seeing their dad this Sunday, then perhaps you can mark the occasion at another time in the coming weeks. And if that is not possible because visitation is not taking place and/or they have been alienated then please try to remember that even the most severely poisoned children, deep down, love their dads, but may find it impossible to express this under the circumstances in which they currently live.
On the occasion of Father’s Day we ask you if you would please consider answering a short questionnaire about what works best at FNF and what we can do and prioritise within our limited resources to improve our services and make a difference.
We leave you with two heartfelt stories from our members. They are relevant to all that we do and justify why we should never give up hope! Click on the boxes below.
We thank you for your ongoing support. To maintain our activities we are almost entirely dependent on membership fees and donations, but the sums we collect are insufficient to meet our current requirements, let alone our wish to extend our services and awareness-raising activities. Please consider making a donation to FNF to enable us to continue to offer and develop our support services and campaigns.
You can donate to FNF via this page. If you are not a member and wish to join or you simply wish to register in support please do so using the buttons above on this page.
