Yorkshire Families Need Fathers

North and West Yorkshire Branch

We aim to support the needs of local people and we do this by following Families Need Fathers Aims and Objectives.

What we believe

  • Children have a right to a continuing loving relationship with both parents
  • Children need to be protected from the harm of losing contact with one parent
  • Both parents should be treated equally and shared parenting should be encouraged
  • Each parent has a unique contribution to make to their children's development
  • The Family Courts should be backed by a nationally funded mediation service
  • Litigation is not the preferred route for resolving post separation children's matters

What we do

  • We work to increase awareness of the problems of family breakdown
  • We produce booklets, leaflets, a website and a regular newsletter
  • We hold local self-help branch meetings throughout the UK
  • We provide support to members through our internet forums
  • We operate a national helpline
  • We have a network of volunteer telephone contacts
  • We run Parenting Support workshops
  • We provide speakers and case studies for the press and media
  • We participate in family policy forums and seminars
  • We respond to government consultations
  • We lobby Parliament and the legal profession
  • We collate and promote relevant research information
