FISH and Relationships Australia NSW (RANSW) collaborate together to provide the Kids in Care Group Program as a regular parent support group for parents whose children are in care. It is a six-week program. Kids in Care is your opportunity to:

  • Receive support from other parents who have experienced the same situation
  • Address issues of grief, stigma, and trauma
  • Develop skills in emotional regulation, communication, and assertiveness
  • Hear stories of strength and survival
  • Learn about the impact of children being removed
  • Gain a better understanding of our brains and bodies under stress, and how to manage thee emotions.

Call the FISH peer team on our free call line. A FISH peer worker will tell you more about the program, take your details, and support you through the assessment.
