Co-parenting support for separated parents

Triple P Family Transitions is a parenting course for parents who have separated from their partner and would like support working through this change to help maintain a positive environment for their children.

Family Transitions is not a mediation programme and ex-partners are not expected to attend the course together.  If both parents would like to do the course, they will be invited to attend separate groups.
