Emotional Abuse is still not recognised in the family courts.

Emotional abuse is still not recognised in the family courts. Our survey responses indicate that these mums have very little no or support and are living in fear. These mothers are becoming so ill over this abuse and are in so much distress that that they want to fake their own identities, flee, even end their lives. Why because Mums are being forced to hand over their children for contact even when they know that their children aren’t safe and will and do come to emotional and in some cases physical harm.

Mums In Need have made reference to this recent article to build public awareness to show exactly how Mums are being treated in the courts when they are scared and refuse to hand their children over. Here is what this top judge stated recently in daily mail. The daily mail news article Top judge says mothers should have children taken away if they don’t let fathers see them Children should be handed over to the full time care of the father if the mother persistently defies court orders, Mr Justice Coleridge said. He called for a ‘three strikes’ rule.

New Trustees

We now have two dedicated trustees. The trustees both as do I offer our service to these mums in our own time, when we are away from our children and work.

Mums In Need has been trying very hard to set up as a registered charity. However the process for this is extremely hard as in order to register as an official charity, you need to have promised amounts of money in the form of a detailed letter of sums adding up to a minimum of £5000.

Our trustees are working hard to find ways to raise as much awareness as possible by continuing to posting on our public Facebook page and Twitter. Once we are established as a charity,it will be make the whole process of fundraising much easier to obtain as we will be a recognised service.
