• Support Group Policy | Families Need Fathers

In-Person Meetings

Welcome to our Support Groups, where we embrace parents, grandparents, extended family, and friends ready to support those in need. Membership is not a prerequisite for attending meetings, but we encourage your active involvement and expect you to sign up for membership if you find our sessions beneficial. Your support contributes to our vital work, and donations to our charity are greatly appreciated.

Our meetings are facilitated by experienced volunteers, and there is no fee for attendance or discussion. Participants share their situations and needs discreetly, ensuring confidentiality. Information, suggestions, and insights are exchanged, covering various topics such as personal issues, addressing false allegations, navigating legal avenues, and understanding related services. We trust you to discern which comments are valuable in your specific situation. Check our website calendar for details on upcoming in-person or online meetings, and join us in fostering a supportive community.

Please use this form to register your attendance, and use our calendar to find your nearest in-person or next online support group, you may attend any group you wish.

What Our Service Users Say

” What an amazing organisation, offering help, support and advice. A really informative and pioneering charity. Thank you! ”

Families Need Fathers Testimonials - What Our Service Users Say

“ Excellent charity, and volunteers that gives hope and support with practical information, not only to fathers but grandparents / extended family too. A lifeline in devastating situations where ultimately the children are the focus. If contact with your child or grandchild is broken, this is the organization for all relevant information, support and understanding. ”

Families Need Fathers Testimonials - What Our Service Users Say

” I don’t know how I would have coped without the Shared Parenting knowledge and empowerment from the peer support of FNF. Women are welcome in most settings. ”

Families Need Fathers Testimonials - What Our Service Users Say

” FNF taught me about the realities of the UK Family Court system at a time when I was very vulnerable and in need of guidance. Their ‘Surviving Separation’ course is excellent. ”

” The only charity to support any parent or grandparent to regain contact with their child or children, I regularly attend the Manchester group once a month to provide support. ”

Families Need Fathers Testimonials - What Our Service Users Say

” Without this group I would have been lost. I am the grandmother of a son who had his children taken away by the mother and false allegations submitted to ensure no contact. It has been heart breaking but reading the stories, being part of a community and having access to meetings gives information, advice and the hope and knowledge that it can change. I will keep supporting my son and grandchildren so they are together in the future. ”

Families Need Fathers Testimonials - What Our Service Users Say

” Families Need Fathers is an inclusive organisation that supports mothers, fathers, and ultimately children. I have personally found their support to be invaluable and truly believe it has saved my life and helped me become a stronger, resilient, and positive human being, father, and husband. They have educated and coached with my own personal development, positive co-parenting, positive parenting, and Family Court and the legal/court process. In that order. The peer-to-peer support is unmatched…I’ve never experienced a more active and supportive group of individuals brought together by a single goal – Happy Families! ”
