How you can help

There are several ways to get involved with UKAP’s objectives, click here to get involved.

There are no joining or other fees. What we do ask for please is your contribution to our survey, so that we can build a picture of what is happening in our family courts, to visit our blog, and for you to register your interest in our proposed class action. Our focus is LAW, but we aim to provide a ‘hub’ for alienated or ‘targeted’ parents (‘TPs’) providing guidance as to the resources available both nationally and internationally for those affected by PA.   Please feel free to browse around and let us know your views by completing our survey.
