Who can help teenagers and young adults when parents divorce or separate?

You can even speak to young people who have been trained to help you.
Many services now come under the umbrella of ChildLine

BBC2 documentary needs you
Rare Day is making a documentary for BBC2 about the experience of parents splitting up, explored from your point of view.
We’re looking for people aged 12-21 whose parents have separated, or are doing so at the moment.
The intention is to make an intelligent, sensitive and though-provoking single documentary for BBC2.
It is being directed by the lovely, award-winning director, Olly Lambert who has personal experience in this area.
If this sounds like you, and you'd like the chance to tell your story from your point of view, please email BBC Doc/DivorceAid and I will be in touch. All conversations are confidential and there will be no obligation to take part in any filming.
If you are under 18, we’ll need to speak first to a parent or guardian to make sure that they are happy for us to talk to you.
Rare Day has extensive experience of working responsibly with young people and their families. We take our duty of care very seriously and have strict guidelines which are designed to protect the people we work with.
