We are a specialist service supporting families who experience problems associated with parental separation. We provide an effective approach to support parents, children and young people through the process of separation. We are an approved supplier of the SPIPS and we can help you:

  • Reduce the negative emotional impact of separation
  • Reduce the costs associated with family breakdown
  • Improve the emotional wellbeing of family members
  • Reduce the need to involve the Family Courts/Cafcass
  • Communicate and understand each other more
  • Share parenting arrangements
  • Alleviate the problems associated with the introduction of new partners

We are now able to offer parents/carers/grandparents a voluntary place on a Separated Parents Information Programme.  This means that you do not need a court order to attend.  Please contact mike.carter@ymcans.org.uk for information on costs and dates.
