Moving On – Reducing Parental Conflict

Changing Futures North East is a partner in delivering support to parents as part of the Reducing Parental Conflict Programme for the North East. We are working with Relate and partners in each of the Local Authority areas across the region to provide support to parents in conflict, whether they are together in a relationship or already separated.

Our part of this programme has expanded our ‘Moving On’ Service’ to provide even more options for support with parents and families. Due to the expansion in our offer and our role as part of the regional programme, referrals to Moving On – Reducing Parental Conflict (RPC) has changed slightly and is explained below.

If you are a practitioner working to support a family, you can refer them into the Moving On – Reducing Parental Conflict services by contacting the referral Gateway and asking for the referral tool if you do not already have it.
