JIMMY DEUCHARS OF GRANDPARENTS APART ANNOUNCES LAUNCH OF FIRST MOBILE FAMILY INFORMATION AND EDUCATION CENTRE IN UNITED KINGDOM

We are proud to announce the launch of our Family Information & Education Centre. It will carry all types of family information. We have information about Kinship care, adoption, social services, courts and advice on how to build bridges when family problems arise. We will also have information about other family support organisations that can help with particular issues. If we don’t know the answer, we will know a man that does!

There is an alternative to locking horns, an alternative to legal action. We can help you find the solution to suit your family problems.

We will be promoting ‘The Charter for Grandchildren’ created by the Scottish Government to remind and encourage families to put the children’s welfare first in family arguments and encourage professionals to be more alert to the real ‘best interest of the child’ in their daily workings.

Also available will be The Parenting Agreement for couples planning to separate or divorce to help them come to an agreement about their children and focus on what is best for them. We aim to make sure the distress to children involved is minimised and to help adults avoid costly and lengthy court cases. The ones who lose out most are the children caught up in adult conflict.

Early intervention is the key. Most problems can be resolved if advice, support and information is ready available and the public know where to find it. We are trying to do just that.

Our group have received a Big Lottery Award (Investing in Ideas) to develop this project and will be touring around Scotland to make the public aware that there is help available if they are having family problems.

See the Scottish Sun on Wednesday for our advert.
