A quarter of the 12 million children living in the UK have experienced parental separation. The separation process can be traumatic, resulting in issues ranging from problems at school to long term mental health issues. Relate will create a new online service for separating parents. It will contain information, advice, self-help tools and exercises, with the aim of helping separating parents to better understand what the biggest issues are for them, what the priorities are for their families, and start making arrangements. The project will also give parents access to good and affordable help if they get stuck. The platform aims to help parents reach fairer and faster agreements, and learn to do this in ways that minimise conflict, protecting their children and laying the foundations for co-operative parenting. In five years, Relate's online family dispute resolution service will support 55,000 divorcing and separating couples and their over 90,000 dependent children.
