Cafcass – seen by so many victims of the phenomena as a major part of the problem – says it deals with 125,000 cases of parental alienation each year. Sarah Parsons, the assistant director, now says the organisation now recognises that the alienating parent’s aim is to persuade the child to permanently exclude that parent from their life.
But campaigners still believe Cafcass if failing in its duty to stop it happening and they are campaigning to have parental alienation a criminal offence.

At the same time the groups will be sending out the NAAP report – which was first published last year on the consumerwatchfoundation.com – to every MP in England, Scotland and Wales.
