OurFamilyWizard and Parenting Apart Programme Join Forces
With OurFamilyWizard as its digital arm, the Parenting Apart Programme expands reach of world's leading co-parenting platform across the United Kingdom.
LONDON, December 7, 2020 - The United Kingdom's Parenting Apart Programme has chosen OurFamilyWizard as its technology partner. This collaboration will enable Parenting Apart to more seamlessly refer families who enter the programme to use OurFamilyWizard's leading co-parenting app.
In an effort to expand its digital footprint, the Parenting Apart Programme will encourage all families to use the OurFamilyWizard platform to handle communication and facilitate day-to-day decision-making as they formulate and execute their parenting agreements. Other key aspects of the Parenting Apart Programme's approach include in-person or virtual meetings between parents and family law practitioners who are all well-versed in assisting with common challenges while negotiating parenting agreements.
Parents can self-refer themselves to Parenting Apart, or it may be included in a court order for parents to participate in the programme. Practitioners who work with families through Parenting Apart will receive special training on OurFamilyWizard so they can educate parents on how to use the platform most effectively. Parenting Apart are currently piloting the initial implementation and promotion of OurFamilyWizard's role in the Parenting Apart Programme with families who are funded through The National Lottery Covid-19 Crisis fund.
