Milli's Separated Family Centre

Milli's Separated Family Centre is a community organisation that works with everyone affected by family separation in order to bring about better outcomes for children.

Our services are available to parents who are caring for their children alone, those who are sharing care and those who are not able to spend time with their children. Parents, carers, grandparents or anyone else with concerns about family separation are welcome.

Our child focused work is designed to help parents:
• Understand and deal with their own and their children's experiences of the separation.
• Make private arrangements for how their children will spend time with both of them.
• Work out how to provide financially for their children and
• Improve communications so that they can manage the transitions that come with separation in the years to come.

"Putting Children First" course

This 6-week course will offer you information, tools and strategies to manage divorce or
separation in a way that helps the whole family adjust to the transitions.

Looking at the impact on you and helping you to work through the difficult issues,
understanding your children's reactions and how best to support them in adjusting and
adapting to the changes, making private agreements for parenting time and financial
provision for children and tools to help you build a co-operative parenting relationship.
