FNF Strategy for Separated Families and Protection of Children and Adults 

We have prepared a presentation of an outline "Strategy for Separated Families and Protection of Children and Adults".

This presentation was initially shared as "A Strategy for Separated Families" at our National Conference on 21st November 2020. The theme was significantly inspired by an internal Government agency report criticising it for not having such a cross-departmental strategy. Their response so far has been focused on a ‘conflict avoidance’ project that we are trying to influence as it is, so far, too focused on therapeutic approaches that are unlikely to reach those who need these most, will not work for many people and are not scalable.

This presentation was also followed by a variation of it the following day to the Vancouver International Conference on Shared Parenting 2020 - the theme of which was ‘The Intersection of Shared Parenting and Family Violence’. 

This paper effectively provides a written and more detailed narrative to the two presentations and also contains information about FNF and what are some of the key reforms we wish to see.
