Parenting Through Separation is a free information course for individual parents who have separated or who are contemplating separation
The course is funded by the Ministry of Justice, and is designed to help parents understand and manage the effects of separation on their children, and how to put their children’s needs first.
The small group course creates a safe space that allows parents to share their experiences with other people in a similar situation, in a supportive and confidential environment.
Participants receive information and resources on strategies for co-parenting with their ex-partner or other carer, reaching agreement on a parenting plan, and how to navigate the Family Justice System.
Skylight runs courses in Kāpiti, Lower Hutt, Porirua, Masterton, and Wellington CBD.
