To achieve our aims and objectives NACCC works with a number of like-minded organisations. This helps us to ensure that we have a maximum reach, therefore, enabling children and their families to access the right service at the right time.

Below is a list of current NACCC friends. We thank them sincerely for their continued support.

If you’d like to find out more about supporting NACCC’s work, please contact us.

Fegans

Fegans, now a part of Spurgeons, is dedicated to continually transforming mental health and has championed childhood since 1870.

The aim of Fagans is to provide families most in need of parenting or therapeutic support with the care they require to become self-sufficient contributors to society and therefore break generational cycles of behaviour.


Advice Now

If you are facing a separation or divorce, Advice Now has all the help you need. Their award-winning guides below explain everything you need to understand and do to separate or get divorced, agree arrangements about the children, and sort out your property and money.

Their advice will help you work out what to do and what to expect, reduce the stress on both of you, save you money, and help you get to a better place, sooner. They’ll show you how to agree what you can agree, and (if necessary) how to go to court about the things you can’t. They will also show you how to do it without a lawyer if you can’t afford one, and how to make everything easier and ensure it is fair by getting just a little legal advice if you can.

Families Need Fathers

Families Need Fathers (FNF), founded in 1974, is a registered charitable social care organization in the United Kingdom that provides information, advice, and support to parents whose children’s relationship with them is under threat during or after divorce or separation, or who have become alienated or estranged from their children.

FNF also advocates for shared parenting, more time for children with their non-custodial parent, and stronger court actions when a custodial parent defies court orders requiring them to allow their children a relationship with the other parent. The organisation’s goal is that children of divorce or separation should not lose the love and care of one of their parents.


Family Justice Young Peoples Board (FJYPB)

The FJYPB are a group of over 50 children and young people aged between seven and 25 years old who live across England and Wales. All members have either had direct experience of the family justice system or have an interest in children’s rights and the family courts.

Their overall aim is to support the work of the Family Justice Board which is to deliver improvements to the family justice system so that it provides the best result for children who come into contact with it.

The FJYPB has published a book about their perspectives of the family law system, called In Our Shoes, which can be downloaded free of charge here.

The FJYPB have worked with NACCC providing feedback on our resources for children and young people, they have attended conferences to share the perspective of young people and undertaken assessments of contact services to provide a unique perspective.


Kinship

Kinship is the leading kinship care charity in England and Wales. They are there for all kinship carers – the grandparents and siblings, the aunts, uncles, and family friends who step up to raise children when their parents can’t.


Only Mums & Only Dads

Only Mums & Only Dads are a national online support and signposting services for parents who are going through or have been through separation/divorce and at Only Mums & Only Dads they offer support and advice to those who need it. 

Their core ethic is to listen to what parents need and in response provide free, accurate, and easily accessible professional advice to parents whatever their background, ethnic group, sexual orientation or family set-up. 

Only Mums & Only Dads worked with NACCC, attending conferences and training sessions. NACCC Management has written articles in the excellent 101 Questions Book and the two organisations collaborate on projects of mutual interest.


Match Mothers

MATCH is a charity that offers non-judgemental support and information to mothers apart from their children in a wide variety of circumstances.

Their members include those who are sharing parenting and those who have little or no contact. We believe that children have a basic human right to continue to be part of a loving, nurturing family network for life, no matter how many times that family re-makes itself, no matter where their mothers live.


Relationships Scotland

Relationships Scotland is Scotland’s largest provider of relationship counselling, family mediation and child contact centre services. The organisation takes on the role of accreditation of child contact services in Scotland.


National Family Mediation

We help families in conflict, especially those divorcing or separating.

Family mediation is quicker and more cost-effective than heading to court. It reduces conflict, and you stay in control of arrangements over children, property and finance.
