Parenting Orders Program – Post Separation Co-operative Parenting Program

The Australian Government is inviting organisations via a restricted process to apply to deliver the Parenting Orders Program – Post Separation Co-operative Parenting Program (POP/PSCPP) as part of the Family Relationship Services Program (FRSP) from 1 July 2019 to 30 June 2024. Funding will be offered to 28 organisations as a result of this process.

The POP/PSCPP assists separated or divorced parents experiencing difficulties in resolving or managing conflict, which arise over parenting arrangements for their children. The objectives of the grant opportunity are to:

  • improve the management of relationship difficulties by separated or divorced families
  • facilitate children’s contact and relationships with both parents in a manner which encourages consideration of what is in the child’s best interests while ensuring the safety of all parties, and
  • reduce the adversarial nature of family disputes so that there is less use made of the Family Courts or other legal processes.

The intended outcomes of this grant opportunity are for programs to assist separated families in high conflict, through interventions that assist parents to establish new parenting arrangements and to avoid breaching parenting orders in the future.
