Governance

Shared Parenting Scotland is a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation, overseen by a board of trustees and accountable to its membership.

Until 2019 the membership comprised of Scottish based members of Families Need Fathers UK and those whose children lived in Scotland.  At the 2018 AGM it was agreed to change the constitution of the organisation to establish a separate membership and also to increase the number of trustees from six to eight, to reflect the growing size of the organisation.
