Children in separating families seek funding to launch new website

First service for children entirely funded by teenagers launches campaign

Three groups of teenagers in Hereford, Milton Keynes and Crickhowell are calling on every person who knows or has been a child of separating parents to make a donation to build a new website for children whose parents are separating. The crowd funding campaign takes place during June and July and aims to raise the first £50,000, enough to launch the new website, KidsintheMiddle.org.uk, by 2014. KidsintheMiddle.org.uk will be the first service for children entirely funded by teenagers.

The teenagers – not all from separating families but all knowing children who have struggled – are reacting to the closure of two other on-line services for children in this situation. Government is investing money in new services for separating parents but is not funding anything directly for children.
You can visit  www.KidsintheMiddle.org.uk to watch their video and make a donation or text "KITM88 £10" to 70070.

A spokesperson for Resolution said:

"Campaigns like Kids in the Middle help highlight the issues and provide a vital resource to help reduce the pain of separation, particularly for children."

Duncan Fisher OBE, Project Manager from Family Matters Institute, with a track record in starting new projects for families and children, said:

"This is the first ever "crowd funding" campaign in UK to create a new service for children and it is entirely led by teenagers. A key to their success is the support of adults, which is why we are so pleased that family judges and lawyers are backing their campaign."
