Family Rights Group

Family Rights Group promotes policies and practices that keep children safe within their family and strengthen the family and community networks of those children who cannot live at home.   

We campaign for families to have their voice heard, be treated fairly and get help early to prevent problems escalating.   We are a national charity that advises parents, grandparents, relatives and friends about their rights and options when social workers or courts make decisions about their children’s welfare. We work with parents whose children are in need, at risk or are in the care system and with wider family members and friends who are raising children (known as kinship carers).  

Online advice service - 
Our Family Rights Group website has easy-to-follow online advice. It also features an A-Z, FAQs, films, ‘top tips’ and legal advice sheets. You may also want to visit our advice forums, where parents and kinship carers (also known as family and friends carers) can get legal and practical advice on the child welfare system.  

Online forums where families can receive advice, discuss issues, and find support;

pilot webchat service where you can message an adviser online, who will help you find information and advice to support you.
