News from Families Need Fathers Scotland

Our weekly e-newsletter was paused last Autumn when we moved office in order to rectify some problems in the way the links were working.  Although plenty has happened since then and some news articles have been posted on the website, it has taken longer than planned to resume the e-newsletter. 

To catch up on some recent news from FNF Scotland:

  • our second parenting course for separated fathers starts in Edinburgh on February 12th.  Working with Parent Network Scotland and with funding from the Big Lottery we running these courses and developing online support material.
  • FNF Scotland has received the new Help and Support for Separated Families (HSSF) quality mark, the second Scottish organisation to achieve this standard. 
  • A member from Fife has already signed up to raise funds for FNFS by taking part in the Tough Mudder event in Scotland this June.  Completing this 12-mile long obstacle course is more fun as a team, so we are looking for some more recruits to join him at the event in Dalkeith Country Park.  Contact ian.maxwell@fnf.org.uk if you are tempted.
  • Submissions for the Scottish Parliament Equal Opportunities Committee enquiry into issues facing single fathers are already building up, and we will publish our response on this web site soon.
  • FNFS is collecting information from separated fathers about their experiences of the courts and other services.  The survey can be completed below:
