FCO launches Campaign to help tackle international parental child abduction


Every other day a British child is abducted by a parent to a country which has not signed the 1980 Hague Convention on international parental child abduction, according to new research released today by the FCO.

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office has very recently launched the parental child abduction media campaign. Spain is a priority country in these matters and during this time of the year with children travelling all around the world visiting parents, camps, relatives etc, child abduction cases are more likely to happen.

HERE is a link to the campaign which has recently been posted on the FCO website and which has been sent to me and The Tenerife Forum. It will shortly be sent to the local press and other websites to help raise awareness in Child Abduction issues to contribute to the campaign reaching its full potential.

The FCO says: “If you are worried your child might be at risk, or if your child has been abducted you can call the Child Abduction Section at the Foreign Office on 0207 008 0878 or www.fco.gov.uk or reunite on 0116 2556 234.
