Mum and Dad are splitting up

Separated families are also covered in a recent documentary on BBC2 - Mum and Dad are splitting up - which was broadcast on the evening that FNF Scotland held its first AGM in Glasgow.

"With a third of British children living with only one biological parent, this simple but revealing film ventures into the heart of British family life to ask young people about their experience of their parents' breakup.

Based entirely on honest, intimate interviews with both young people and their parents (often sat together and discussing the event for the first time), director Olly Lambert draws out the complex feelings and secrets that took root in the family when mum and dad split up.

In the process, both parents and their offspring find themselves asking questions of each other that have remained unsaid for years, and being frequently surprised by the answers. A moving and surprisingly uplifting insight into the reality of modern family life."
