Introduction to Voices in the Middle

Voices in the Middle is a place where young people aged 13 to 19 years old, whose parents are splitting up can find a place to share their voice, read helpful and age-appropriate content plus connect with support designed just for them.

Voices in the Middle is a collaboration between young people, the family law & mediation sector and The Family Initiative charity. Together they provide a dedicated place for young people to find help and support when in the middle of divorce and separation. About The Family Initiative

Here, in our area for parents, you can read about how to talk to and support your teenager in the middle of divorce and separation, including their rights, well-being and protecting their family relationships.

We have been guided by material provided young people who have been through family separation: we asked them what they most wanted to say to parents.
