Family law now a 'stunt-free' area

The disbandment of Fathers 4 Justice is allowing other less contentious charities to make serious inroads into family policy, a new coalition of children and family charities has said.

Forty voluntary organisations and academics, including NCH, Fathers Direct and Women's Aid, have united to consult the Government on how to reform policy for separated families.

The coalition hopes more progress will be made now that messages from the sector are less loaded and are not accompanied by controversial stunts.

"The disbandment of Fathers 4 Justice has created a space for people to think co-operatively about this issue," said Jack O'Sullivan, co-founder of Fathers Direct and spokesman for the coalition. "It has made it a less fraught area."
