What is Supporting Children after Separation?

The Supporting Children after Separation Program (SCaSP) is here to support children to make sense of their parents’ separation and to adapt to changes in the family.

What is involved?

We provide individual counselling, children’s groups and education skills programs for children and young people.


SCaSP offers children individual counselling to assist them to make sense of the changes and to equip them with strategies to deal with their particular situation.

Group Work

SCaSP offers groups for children and young people. It is often useful for children to know they are not the only ones. Through sharing their experiences and feelings children and young people develop strategies to assist them to cope better.

SCaSP Pack

SCaSP provides educational and resources packs to support your child in regard to separation, the impact of changes in the family and ways to deal with these changes.

Educational Programs

SCaSP offers educational presentations and events that can assist everyone to better understand and deal with family separation.

Children and young people aged 6 – 17 years from a separated family.
