It would be helpful if there was more information about the Family Rights Movement, what it campaigns for and which organisations are involved.

In response to Fiona, this is from their forum:


The UK Family Rights Movement (FRM) Forum is dedicated to three initial objectives:

1. To facilitate exchange of information and ideas among peer FRM organisations;
2. To network with peer FRM organisations regarding joint undertakings such as submissions in response to public consultations;
3. To discuss creation of a UK FRM “ big tent” Coalition to provide political economies of scale without impacting the autonomy of member organisations.

FRM is defined as the community of mothers'/fathers'/children's/ grandparents'/second spouses' organisations subscribing to core ideals of the international Family Rights Movement:

• Presumptive shared parenting,
• Gender equality, and
• Recognition of domestic violence as a genderless dysfunction.

Members from the following 26 organisations are currently participating in forum discussions:

• Advocacy Fund
. BIYproject
• Both Parents Matter-Cymru
• Cheltenham Group
. FR4E
. F4J
. Family Advocacy & Law
• Grandparents Apart
• Grandparents Association
• Mankind Initiative
• McKenzie Friends Family Law
• Men’s Aid
. P4P Wales/Cymru
• RF4J
. Temper DV
• Victims Unite

In addition there are individuals with unofficial connections to various organisations. Some of the best known campaigners in the business have already signed up, including Jimmy Deuchars, Ray Barry, Robert Whiston, Ivor Catt and Layton Bevan, so it promises to be an interesting and constructive project. The aim initially is to see what basic principles can be agreed on by as large a majority as possible of the family support community. They have started with a core set of 3 non-negotiable principles, but these can be added to.

Change doesnt come about by itself. If you have an opinion, this is an opportunity to express it.
