Real parents.

Real experiences.

Family Inclusion Strategies in the Hunter (FISH) created this website to link you with information that may be helpful if your child was removed by child protection authorities and placed in out of home care, or if you are worried your child may be removed. We are parents and workers who have experience of child protection and out-of-home care systems.

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.
