Cohabitation Awareness Week 2017

Back to news

For Good Divorce week 2018, Resolution raised awareness of how parents can minimise the impact of conflict on their children, calling on government to reform divorce law and sharing resources with members to support their work with separating parents.

Many thanks to all who got involved in Resolution’s 2017 Awareness Raising Week. Events were held up and down the country, seeing practitioners offer advice for cohabiting couples, call for a change in the law and provide information to key professionals working with cohabiting couples.

Surveys provided a great deal of insight into what practitioners and the general public think about cohabitation.

Cohabiting couples represent 1 in every 5 families in the UK
