Could you be there to support our Stuck Parents through the toughest moments of their
You are really doing an amazing job and again thanks a million for your help and advice and
your kindness and understanding. – A Stuck Parent
GlobalARRK is a charity which supports single parents in need who are ‘stuck’ in a foreign
country after a relationship breakdown. Around 30% of these parents have taken their children
to their home country and are being charged with International parental Child Abduction. The
rest are just ‘stuck’, perhaps they have recently separated or are applying to ‘Relocate’ to their
home country. We help those who are in need – typically they are suffering domestic abuse,
they are poor, homeless, visa-less or just isolated.
We support ‘Stuck Parents’ by providing information, signposting to expert legal professionals
and specialist charities (eg domestic violence, homelessness etc) and speaking to parents to
offer emotional support. We also advocate for stuck parents and raise awareness on this issue
working towards a child centred system where families can survive and thrive.
We are committed to Equality, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion and wish to make our charity
and services as inclusive and friendly to all as possible. We especially wish to encourage
those with lived experience of other cultures and languages to apply as we support parents
from over 40 countries.
