The Parent Peer Support Project (PPSP) is a trial project that will provide parent peer support for parents who have had children removed from their care. The project aims to support, educate and empower parents who have children subject to care and protection matters in Broadmeadow Children’s Court to participate in legal proceedings and to stay connected to their children. Education and support will be delivered by trained and supervised peer parents (parent partners) who have successfully navigated the child protection system themselves and can use this experience to help others.
