Hosted by Benjamin Goddard, #alwayschildfocused is a fortnightly podcast for parents going through separation. Each episode features discussions with members of the Holding Hands team, previous parents who have used the service and experts in the family law and social work sectors to discuss the journey of separation and its effects on children and families.
Specifically designed for parents entering the Holding Hands Children Contact Service but useful to any parents going through separation, each week's episode combines real life experiences and expertise with topical discussions about current changes and challenges.
