New free parenting guide offered to separating families in Hull and East Yorkshire

The Family team at Rollits are pleased to be supporting Good Divorce Week (29 Nov -3 Dec), a campaign run each year by Resolution, the family justice organisation, to raise awareness of how families can separate constructively. This year the focus of Good Divorce Week is parenting through separation.

The Parenting Through Separation Guide is written by family professionals and advises parents of how to put their children first during a separation. Rollits are offering the guide for free to local families who are divorcing or separating.

Alison Benson, Head of Family at Rollits said: “We know that the pandemic has put huge pressure on families and even more so on those who are separating. Every parent wants to put their children’s interests’ front and centre, but all too often they don’t know where to turn for help and aren’t given the support they need in order to do this.

“It’s important for parents to have access to good, authoritative and professional advice that helps them to parent responsibly through their separation. We hope all local separating parents will use the Parenting Through Separation Guide, to help them find a better way forward for them, and for their children.” 

The free guide is available to any parent seeking help during their separation. It contains advice about how to co-parent with a former partner, background on the common disputes that arise between separating parents, and how to talk to children about the painful topic of divorce or separation, plus much more.

Juliet Harvey, national chair of Resolution, said: “I’m really pleased to have Rollits support during Good Divorce Week. Resolution members like them do really important work in their community to help families separate in a constructive and amicable way. The more families who know about and use the free Parenting Through Separation Guide, the better equipped they will be to navigate the challenges divorce and separation brings, particularly when it comes to putting children first.”
