Next year, Family Rights Group celebrates our 50th birthday!
We were first set up 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.
Back then, local authorities could take away parental rights without going to court. And grandparents had no legal means to seek contact with their grandchildren if they were in care. Both of those things are no longer the case.
A lot more has changed over the past 50 years and we have had significant successes in shaping developments across the child welfare and family justice system.
To celebrate our golden anniversary, we are looking to share stories from families who have benefited from our work, and the memories of those we have worked with. Whether it was the 70s, the 00s, or the last few months, we want to hear from you!
