Family Rights Group's goal is to enable children to be raised safely and thrive within their family and community.
The Charity was established in 1974, by a group of lawyers, social workers and academics who were concerned about how families were treated when social services were involved with their children.
We work 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.
Our free and confidential advice service is provided via telephone and online discussion boards. Our expert advisors have extensive experience in legal and social work practice, they help families to understand the law and child welfare processes, as well as better understand the concerns of social workers.
