Real parents.

Real experiences.

Family Inclusion Strategies in the Hunter created this website to link you with information that may be helpful if your child has been removed by child protection authorities and placed in out of home care. It may also be helpful if you are worried your child may be removed. We are parents and workers who have experience of the child protection and out-of-home care system.

This website contains information that is relevant for families living in New South Wales, Australia, especially those who live in the Hunter Valley and Central Coast areas. We can send you updates on events and other activities if you are a FISH member.

Help us evaluate the PPSP.
