The Parenting Apart programme is aimed at parents who have separated, are separating, divorced or thinking of divorce.
The programme will provide practical advice and guidance about what children need to know, and what parents can do to meet their children’s need.

The programme explores:
- Emotional impact
- Parenting roles
- Changes in relationships
- Financial impact
