Families Need Fathers
The UK's leading Shared Parenting charity

FNF is a charity chiefly concerned with the problems of maintaining a child's relationship with both parents during and after family breakdown. 


We offer information, advice and support services to help parents to achieve a positive outcome for their children. Our Forum and our network of over 50 UK Branches also offer the pro-bono guidance of solicitors and others familiar with the family courts.



Our national helpline is available 7 days a week, 7am - midnight on 0300 0300 363


Monday - Friday, between the hours of 6 pm and 10 pm, we provide more specialised support. 

At these times, the helpline is staffed by volunteers who have experience of some of the problems that you might be facing. They may able to give you information that will enable you to progress your situation or simply to listen if you want a sympathetic ear. 


Branch Meetings

We've found that it helps for parents to talk to others who are in a similar situation and are able to share their experiences. That's why we organise meetings all over the country. Our members can talk to and support each other directly, share their experiences and provide help.


Please note that our meetings are open to all - if you are a grandparent, aunt, uncle, family friend who would like to attend on behalf of your son, daughter, sibling etc. then we will make you very welcome.
