FNF Scotland have appointed a student intern to carry out research into the benefits of Shared Parenting.
Shared Parenting is when both parents are actively involved in all aspects of their children’s lives and share meaningful parenting responsibility. Children gain different things from fathers and mothers or from two same-sex parents, and therefore benefit from shared parenting whether the parents live in the same or different households.
Our intern Beth Nandwani will write a report on shared parenting which will include details from academic research, and also interviews with parents about the shared parenting they have achieved and the issues they face. The Internship is through the University of Edinburgh Employ.ed scheme, funded by Santander.
The report will be used to promote shared parenting and help those who are trying to achieve it, and also as part of our lobbying work to encourage reform of Scots family law.
Beth will be carrying out interviews with parents to find out how they made shared parenting work and what problems were faced along the way, as well as what advice can be passed on. If you would be interested in becoming involved in this project email her for further details or ring the Edinburgh office on 0131 557 2440.0 likes
