Prove it! Ms Jamieson is giving you the chance to tell them what is wrong with the system, they are now listening, now is the time to write your story completely in confidence. The Bill is now in the assessment stage, nothing will be published without your full consent. Send it to us.

On June 9th 2004 Grandparents Apart Self Help Groups Scotland were invited
by The Scottish Executive to the consultation stage of the bill to discuss the new Family Law Proposals.

We are hoping for Contact/Mediation/Family Education Centres where families can get help with problems before it gets to the point of no return, bitterness, courts fights etc. At the end of the day it is the children who suffer when families fall out.

1. How children suffer from family arguments.

2. How the Social services handles cases.

3. How courts treat you when you attend them,
