Families Need Fathers

mattz118

A social care and campaigning organisation founded in 1974 that aims to keep dads involved with their kids after divorce or separation.

Families Need Fathers believes that children need both parents fully involved in their lives, whoever has custody of them.

It offers advice and support to dads who are worried about losing touch with their kids. It also pushes for changes in the law and society, so both parents have equal legal status, and so care and financial support is divided equally between mums and dads.

What can it do for me?

If you have recently separated from your partner and need help or advice about staying in your children’s lives, Families Need Fathers can help you.
