Good Divorce Week 2021

During Good Divorce Week 2021 we kickstarted a national conversation about how parents can embrace a child-focused approach to separation. 

Good Divorce Week 2021 (29 Nov – 3 Dec) helped to raise awareness of Resolution’s Parenting Through Separation Guide which gives parents advice and practical tips to ensure family break-up has as little impact on children as possible.

During the week, we released new research with YouGov that showed two thirds of parents said they lacked help or advice about how to put their children first when they split from their partner.

Members got behind the week by sharing social media posts, undertaking media activity and publishing blogposts. There were 94 pieces of print, online and broadcast coverage, generating over 8 million opportunities to read, hear and learn about the guide. 

On social media, members have been amazing with over 2,000 posts using the hashtags #GoodDivorceWeek and #ABetterWay reaching an audience of 3.4 million potential users.

Members like Nicholas and Taler (below) have been using the week to engage the public and Members of Parliament.

I took part in interviews with ITV and BBC during Good Divorce Week. It was a great opportunity to speak directly to viewers and listeners about divorce, separation and parenting. I was able to share important advice directly from the guide, which our firm is sharing with all parents who need support.

I met my MP during Good Divorce Week to discuss how parents and children could be better supported through family separation. We discussed the Parenting Through Separation Guide and my MP is now going to make sure all local pro bono legal services know about the guide.

Former family lawyer Siobhan Ballie MP also helped to raise awareness of the guide with parliamentary colleagues penning an opinion piece in Politics Home.
