Eluned Parrott AM joined the Cardiff support meeting on April 1st. She sat and listened to the cases of the parents and grandparents who had come to the meeting.

Sadly she told us that although we probably expected her to be shocked, the stories she was hearing were similar to ones she encountered as an AM.

At the end of the evening she summed up from the notes she had made. She had picked up the salient issues and difficulties that the non-resident parent and the grandparent encounters and she promised she would do her best to help make things fairer so that more children can grow up knowing that both their parents love them.


Thank you for coming along Eluned, it meant a lot to us. Thank you very, very much.
