Both Parents Matter Cymru is a Welsh charity which believes that children should grow up knowing the love of both their parents. The charity has a Helpline, 08456 004446, staffed Monday to Friday from 10 am to 7pm. There are support groups across Wales helping non-resident parents, mothers and fathers and also helping grandparents. In Cardiff there is also an emotional support group.
In Wales, although the Family Law is the same as in England there are increasingly differences within the systems. Wales uses CAFCASS Cymru, a separate body from CAFCASS. Child protection protocol is also different. The charity was set up to respond to the changes caused by devolution and also works at a strategic level wherever possible to make sure the non-resident parent is involved in their child’s life.
