Service and Support

Family courts are complex and are often filled with conflict. Legal action can also be prohibitively expensive. I have spent thirty five years helping children and parents through some of the most difficult of circumstances; as their social worker, as a manager and trainer of teams of social workers and as a Children's Guardian. Engaging me as your 'McKenzie Friend' will make my experience available to you and your children. My services are affordable and effective.

(Please note, due to my employment with South Tyneside MBC, I am unable to offer a service if your children, or either you or the other parent live in South Tyneside ).

You will find a lot of additional information about Kim, including Kim’s Terms of Engagement and Fees; Professional Registrations Insurance and Accountability documents on his website - llink below.

Profile: Kim has been helping children and their families as a professional social worker for thirty-five years. A lot of his work has been in court settings and in family mediation.  

As a Practitioner and a Team Manager, I have specialised in Local Authorities Child Protection with Children and Families. Over this time I have presented or supervised the presentation of many hundreds of cases in the Family courts as either practitioner or manager.

It’s because of this professional expertise, my determination to help children and families in difficult situations, and my own life experience, that I am able to offer a useful service to those involved in family court proceedings.

I am also able to provide Independent Social Work Assessments covering all aspects of the Welfare Checklist , when instructed by the court

I look forward to hearing how I might help you and your family.
