We understand how hopeless you can feel when involved with the Local Authority and the family courts. In this section we hope to provide a place of support and advice for vulnerable families. Here are some of the most useful websites we have found so far:
ORGANISATIONS FOR CHILDREN IN DISTRESS:

According to the NSPCC, if your children are witnessing domestic abuse or violence, this is now classed as child abuse, therefore even if you are the victim of the abuse, you are also seen as a perpetrator of child abuse.
We hope to add more to this section as we become more involved with the public and professionals. Remember you are not alone. As we grow, we will be aiming to provide financial help to those in need of legal support in regards to their rights and their children.
Whilst we are already receiving large numbers of emails, we do aim to respond to all as soon as we can.
