Who It's For

This program is for separated parents and carers who currently have no contact with their children but wish to restore the relationship.

How We Help

Divorce and separation are rarely easy, but one of the most heartbreaking aspects is feeling disconnected from your kids. Reconnecting can be incredibly challenging, especially where abuse was present. We can support you towards reuniting safely.

What to Expect

Facilitators will support you as you learn how your communication and behaviour around co-parenting can support positive relationships with your children, as well as positively contribute to their mental health.


Six sessions, over six weeks
Two hours per session


Fees are determined based on your income at a level affordable to you. No one is turned away because of an inability to pay.

Delivery Options

This group workshop is available online.

Managing grief that comes with separation from a partner and children
Strategies for reducing conflict and improving communication
Establishing ways to continue relationships with children, despite separation
Preparing for ongoing change
Establishing the path for future restoration of your relationship with your children
Finding ways to cooperate and co-parent to meet your children’s needs
