Family shock: 1-in-3 parents don't see kids after splitting up PDF Print E-mail

Almost one in three parents never see their children after splitting from their partner, a survey revealed yesterday.

The study of separated mums and dads found 29 per cent said their children had no contact with the parent who had left home, which was usually the father.

Fiona Weir, chief of single parents' pressure group Gingerbread, said: "Findings show just how hard it is for separated families to achieve arrangements that work for all concerned.

Families are struggling along with precious little help. Parents need to know that help is out there, and need to feel comfortable using services to help them resolve contact issues."

Gingerbread and Oxford University found in a poll of 559 separated parents that nearly all have serious problems in keeping youngsters in contact with their exes.

Mothers often worry children are not being properly cared for while spending time with dads.

Children also complain about being sent away to see their father.

Where kids do see both their parents after a split, 52 per cent have contact at least once a week, 28 per cent have contact once a month and 21 per cent have contact less often than once a month.

Few separated families go to family courts to sort out their differences.

The poll found 90 per cent did not use them to end rows over contact and few knew about mediation services available.

The survey comes as the Tories are thought to be preparing a new crackdown on single mothers. Speculation grew after Sir David Freud, a Government adviser on welfare reform, quit to become a frontbench spokesman for David Cameron's party.

Sir David has been behind attempts to get single mums back to work and is now thought to be preparing welfare reform policies for the Tories.

Mr Cameron described his new recruit as "a hugely impressive figure" who will be "at the heart" of any new Tory administration.

The Tory leader told BBC1's The Politics Show: "One of the big challenges is going to be getting Britain back to work and getting these people who have been stuck on benefit for a long time back to work."

This shows just how hard it is for separated families to get arrangements that work for all
