Performers and keynote speakers
We are always looking for professionals, organisations and performers to help educate, raise awareness and support our campaign.
Become a stall holder
We also welcome stall holders from a range of businesses, statutory organisations and support groups, both locally and nationally for our event.
Our event is run by volunteers and we need your help to make parental alienation awareness day happen.
Whether you can spare an hour or two or want to get involved more often, whatever time you can give is invaluable.
There is something for everyone from volunteering at our parental alienation awareness day event, to becoming a cause ribbon appeal champion
We offer campaigns that can run all year long or focus activity during our parental alienation awareness day event. Our charity works with businesses in a number of ways; from event sponsorship and cause related marketing initiatives, to employee fundraising and matching donations.
Run, swim, walk, hold a coffee morning, quiz night, three course dinner or why not create your own challenge. Once you decide what you would like to do, we will send you out a pack for you to get started.
Our parental alienation awareness cause ribbon appeal runs throughout the month of April. Our grandparent alienation awareness campaign runs throughout the month of June, with the 14th June being officially acknowledged as grandparent alienation awareness day. Not only do these causes raise awareness to the wider community but they also help us to raise integral funds for our event and future events around these issues.

Parental Alienation Awareness Flag
Being separated and kept from your one and only child is hell. I miss my son and worry for him every day. He is only a year and a half and needs his daddy. I never thought fatherhood could be anything like this, I have never, and will never experience anything as mentally and emotionally traumatic as this… If your child’s father is actively trying to be a part of your child’s life… LET HIM.

I had no clue what was happening on the other side of parenting time. I do now- as I sit alone this Mother’s Day. As I sit alone every holiday. Every day is a living nightmare. My children are grown, never to return. The abuse cycle continues for me and for my children, even into adulthood

Parental Alienation UK
At Parental Alienation Awareness, our aim is to campaign, raise awareness and educate against the psychological and emotional abuse that is caused when parental alienation occurs. Our philosophy was created through a desire to change the shocking and devastating reality of how common parental alienation is around the UK and the lack of training and education there is around this issue. We do not want anyone to feel as though they have no control in such a heart-breaking situation. If you should need help and support with this issue, please complete our needs assessment form in order to help us understand your current situation.
We also work with professionals and experts through our focus groups for research and resource development, as well as events, fundraising activities and helpful e-news. If you are a professional or expert that has a special interest in this area and would like to help or get involved, please contact us.
What Is Parental Alienation?
The term ‘Parental Alienation’ mainly refers to the destruction and ending of the relationship between a parent and child which can occur in many forms and is most commonly due to three main reasons, divorce, separation and child contact issues. What may happen is that the child may ally with one particular parent and begin to reject the other parent for no legitimate reason. This opinion could be created by that parent through coercive and controlling behaviours set out by the other parent which manifests into a dislike, disrespect and even potential fear.
What Can You Do to Help?
Our team works tirelessly each day at Parental Alienation Awareness educating and raising awareness about parental alienation and helping as many struggling parents as we can. We use our knowledge, our heart and our determination to make change. Except we couldn’t do this without your help. There are so many things that you could do that would make a world of difference including donations, volunteering, DIY fundraising events, or becoming a stall holder at one of our awareness days and more.
