The UK's leading Shared Parenting charity

Local Branch Meetings

We organise meetings all over the country for parents to meet and talk with others who are in a similar situation. Going to meetings and speaking to our experienced volunteers is especially useful if you are going through a court process, as many of our members choose to represent themselves with the support of other FNF members.

Meetings are run by FNF volunteers, some branches may invite outside helpers who offer advice, such as solicitors, McKenzie Friends or Cafcass/Social Workers who offer their time free of charge. Meetings can also be partly social occasions where you can chat and share experiences.

FNF meetings welcome all parents, grandparents, extended family and friends who may attend with, or on behalf, of a parent who needs help. You don't have to be a member to come to a meeting, but we would expect you to become a member and help us if you wish to continue attending our meetings. It is only fair that you in turn support us in our essential work, or make a donation to support our charity.

If there are no meetings in your area, you may consider starting one yourself with FNF support. To find out more click here, please contact . To find out about the other services available to you as a member, see Join Us
