Voices in the Middle: our partnership with a children’s charity

Flint Bishop’s Family Law team partners with children’s charity

Flint Bishop’s Family Law Team is working in partnership with Voices in the Middle, a charity which seeks to help parents reduce conflict, promote communication and encourage co-parenting to provide their children with safe and loving homes.

The project, Voices in the Middle, seeks to give young people who have experienced parental separation a platform to promote their views and to equip them with useful support and information.

The Voices in the Middle website is targeted towards young people, giving practical advice and useful links. It has three messages: you are not alone, it’s not your fault and it’s OK to get help if you want it. It enables young people to communicate with others in similar situations so that they know they are not alone. The website promotes services for children offered by organisations collaborating with Kids in the Middle, including specialist family lawyers and mediators.

Flint Bishop, which is based in Derby and Ashbourne, joins other law firms from around the country including; Mishcon De Reya, Irwin Mitchell and Birketts, in supporting the charity and promoting its services.

Kirpal Bidmead has been recognised by the leading directory Legal 500 as being Highly knowledgeable, experienced and exceptionally customer-focused” as well as being “noted for her expertise in children cases and mandates involving complex financial issues.” She comments on the partnership;

“As a solicitor who has specialised in family law for over 20 years, I have seen the emotional turmoil that couples go through when separating.  I try to remind parents that their children’s needs, wishes and feelings should be the paramount consideration. Children should not be pressured into taking sides, keeping their parents’ secrets or blaming themselves for the separation.  They should not be used as pawns or left feeling isolated.”

Separation can have a devastating impact on children. Every effort should be made to help both parents and children through the separation process with access to comprehensive counselling, practical and legal support.

Voices in the Middle is playing an invaluable role in giving young people a platform, an outlet and a voice. I greatly admire the project’s objectives  and will do all that I can to support them.”
