The UK has one of the highest rates of family breakdown in the Western world with just two thirds of children living with both parents. More than a million children have no contact whatsoever with one or other parent after separation.
Family breakdown has a huge effect on society and business and is estimated to cost the country £49 billion a year. The NACCC is the only charity in the UK dedicated to solving this problem, by providing safe spaces where children can meet the parents they don’t live with.
We oversee more than 400 contact centres across the UK, run by a network of more than 6000 volunteers. Our #LOSTPARENTS campaign aims to raise awareness of the work centres do in keeping children in touch with parents. We have a number of activities planned over the coming year.
