DNA Testing Firm, DNA Worldwide Group, are supporting Renegade Pictures as they develop a pilot programme for a major broadcaster about helping families understand the truth about their relationships.

Families around the UK rely on DNA testing to answer questions about the truth of their relationships and help better understand their family picture.

With as many as 1 in 5 UK families being affected by false paternity rates, this is far from a rare occurrence. Yet many people undergoing testing often feel that they will be judged by friends and family, frequently left embarrassed about the situation.

Renegade Pictures and DNA Worldwide are asking for people to come forward as part of a pilot programme to bring an awareness of DNA Testing in a positive light.

David Nicholson, Managing Director, says, ”We have families coming to us who want to understand the truth of their situation, or confirm to others what they already know. For many involved, it is deeply courageous and a great step from living in the shame and guilt that has often plagued them for years.”

As part of the programme DNA Worldwide will be providing Free of Charge testing to help people through the power of DNA.

If you’ve ever wondered if a sibling, parent or loved one may not be biologically related, then now there is a way for you or someone you know to answer these questions.

Mr Nicholson adds an important point “Regardless of the DNA result, family are the people around us who take responsibility to love, raise and nurture one another, this means more than biology ever could. But there are important reasons when DNA testing is undertaken.”

During the programme participants will be provided support and guidance to understand the impact of testing, and are at no obligation to continue with the testing if, after seeking the support, they feel it is something they do not want to pursue.

Should you decide to take a test, DNA Worldwide guarantees you will receive the most accurate testing, with one-to-one support every step of the way.
