Charity helping parents stuck abroad after relationship breakdown seeks Trustee with law expertise
GlobalARRK provides support to parents in need who are ‘stuck’ in a foreign country after a relationship breakdown. Around 30% of these parents have taken their children to their home country and are being charged with International parental Child Abduction. The rest are just ‘stuck’, perhaps they have recently separated or are applying to ‘Relocate’ to their home country. We help those who are in need – typically they are suffering domestic abuse, they are poor, homeless, visa-less or just isolated.
We support ‘Stuck Parents’ by providing information, signposting to expert legal professionals and specialist charities (eg domestic violence, homelessness etc) and speaking to parents to offer emotional support. We also offer parents the chance to join our peer support groups. Our peer to peer support groups reduce isolation and increase empowerment enabling parents to act legally and continue to care for their children. We also advocate for stuck parents and raise awareness on this issue working towards a child centred system where families can survive and thrive.
Would you like to help international families who find themselves ‘stuck’ in a foreign country after a relationship breakdown abroad?
GlobalARRK is looking for trustees to join the Board!
We support parents in the UK and around the world to navigate the intricacies and pitfalls of international family law including international Relocation and the Hague Convention.
We also provide practical support and a shoulder to lean on, especially when a parent feels alone and without someone who understands. We raise awareness so that parents know the risks of moving abroad and provide a support network to help them through what may be the worst time of their life.
You don’t have to know about international family law or to have gone through the pain of having to fight over custody of a child in a foreign country, but if you want to help support ‘stuck’ parents as a trustee, please do get in touch.
