New mark to help separated parents choose support organisation

The Department for Work & Pensions has launched a new mark for organisations that help support separated families and have their work to be independently assessed and approved.

Two charities, Relate and Family Lives, are among the first organisations to be awarded a new mark for their work in helping support separated families.

The ‘Help and support for separated families' (HSSF) mark is designed to help parents navigate the range of support available to them and choose, with confidence, a high-quality outlet to help.

The mark is awarded following an independent assessment of organisations to show they meet a strict set of standards for promoting parents working together after relationship breakdown. Organisations need to show that they actively work to help parents collaborate constructively to arrange things for their children.

Apply for the HSSF mark on the ‘Sorting out separation' website.
