The Unmarried and Separated Parents of Ireland wish to make the following announcement regarding The Men's Support Groups of Ireland:
The Unmarried and Separated Parents of Ireland (USPI) support group have withdrawn our member’s involvement and contribution in the development of the organisation known as the Men’s Support Groups of Ireland (MSGI). We at USPI do advocate that the concept and the development of this group (MSGI) is worthy of its aim. However, having discussed matters with some of the representatives of the MSGI interim committee, USPI members decided that our organisation cannot and will not participate with the development of MSGI in its present form. This is due to what USPI see as several failings in respect of standards, practices and procedures.
