The goal of the Family Rights Group is to enable children to be raised safely and thrive within their family and community. The charity works with parents whose children are in need, at risk or are in the care system and with members of the wider family who are raising children unable to remain at home.
As part of a wide-range of resources, the group has an excellent guide to Working with families affected by domestic abuse.
The guidance includes:
- Engaging and communicating with mothers
- Safety planning
- Working with resistance
- Engaging and communicating with fathers and father-figures directly
