Welcome to Paths Through Change C.I.C.

Paths Through Change C.I.C. is a not-for-profit social enterprise that promotes the rights of children and young people experiencing divorce / relationship breakdown in their families.

We provide specialist support services to children of all ages. It is our mission to make sure that every child feels seen, respected and well cared for at this stage of their life.

Your child – like a seed – already has their unique essence inside them. We help you to maintain the right conditions for them to flourish before and during your separation

What we do

We get to know your child and help to support them by:

  • Helping your child identify and communicate their needs
  • Running events where children can connect with peers who have had similar experiences
  • Providing opportunities for your child to build relationships with trained, independent adults outside the family
  • Giving easy and practical tools and tips
  • Offering ideas to improve specific situations
  • Connecting your child with a library of resources
  • Widening your child’s support network
  • Helping you to agree a plan for your child with their other parent

Why we do it

There are usually both practical and emotional side-effects for children when their parents separate. Most will benefit from help to navigate the experience. This support can range from quick, easy fixes to bigger changes. 

It is rare for a child’s parents to always agree about what is best and this can be even harder during or after a separation. Paths Through Change provides a more accessible, amicable alternative to the legal system for these situations. 

We believe that a well-managed separation can leave children happier, more resilient and glad that it happened.
