About Our Workshops


Showing Up for Your Kids Workshop Series for Mums and Dads 

A FREE two-day workshop is delivered separately for mums and dads to ensure a safe environment which fosters genuine engagement and participation. These workshops have helped hundreds of parents who are navigating the child protection system to make positive life changes for the benefit of their children.

Participants work through understanding the child protection system processes and expectations of DCP. An experienced lawyer joins us to give insight into the possible pathways once a child has been removed and how to navigate the legal aspects. Participants bring along their own case plans document and time is spent collectively and one-on-one to assist in familiarising parents with the document and determining their next steps. This session also focuses on how parents can make the most of access visits with their child by making meaningful connections and understanding connection impacts from a child’s perspective.

Be Present for Life Workshop

When children feel loved, valued, and supported by their parents, they develop a sense of trust and confidence in themselves and the world around them. This emotional security helps them manage stress, build resilience, and form their own healthy relationships later in life.

The Be Present for Life workshop is a FREE workshop offering transformative and research-based intensive strategies designed specifically for parents with children on 18-year orders. This three-hour workshop aims to empower parents to create a nurturing and loving environment that fosters a healthy attachment with their child, by equipping parents with valuable insights and practical strategies. The workshop focuses on strengthening the parent-child relationship, promoting emotional security, and enhancing the child’s overall well-being.
