Kim Bryan

Kim came to work for Family Rights Group as an administrator and later worked as the charity’s Family Group Conference Network project officer. One of her first tasks was being thrown into organising Family Rights Group’s 2008 major international conference in Stratford Upon Avon. She performed a miracle, with the event involving 40 workshops, seminars, international speakers and hundreds of guests. It brought to together families, policy makers, researchers and practitioners. 

That same commitment and determination was evident throughout her time at Family Rights Group. She connected particularly with Bridget; both were passionate in battling for their children, and woe betide anyone who got in the way. 

A number of current and former members of staff at Family Rights Group became close friends as well as colleagues to Kim.   

Kim died in 2017, aged 50 years old and mother to two teenage children.
