FNF Sheffield : Aims and Objectives

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

  • We produce booklets, leaflets, a website and a regular newsletter

  • We provide support to members through our internet forums
