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.
