Families break-up every day at enormous cost to the individuals, children, the broader family and community. For some individuals, rather than the start of new, purposeful phase of family relations, the breakdown can dangerously spiral into damaging dynamics and sometimes result in violence, suicide and family tragedy. The cost to the family, particularly the children involved, can be devastating.
The life-time cost to the community?

Our Brand Values
Learning - as a path to successful transition
Commitment – as a foundation of change

Tenacity – not daunted by difficulty or challenging clients
Professionalism – quality service delivery
PBB is a harm prevention organisation that works with our clients through a process, not a transaction, and our core purpose is to empower the individual to achieve a new perspective and path to a different way of parenting. It is the value of the peer support model that creates a safe reflective space, builds connection and allows parents going through separation to reduce the risk of suicide.
We are a service based, volunteer organisation for distressed, displaced parents. We educate, support, guide and re-engage parents to avoid the downward spiral that can take hold post separation, utilising a peer support model and experienced, trained field leaders.
Our core development programs, peer support groups and deeply experienced volunteers in the field can intervene when it matters most.
For the displaced, separated parents – there is no manual, and being a displaced, separated parent means change and inevitably challenge. Taking part in PBB is a positive step for separated parents to learn from others how to deal effectively with change, and the work that they are taking up is positive, formative and engaging.
Family breakup and separation is never easy – for the displaced parent it can mean a downward, damaging spiral for all involved. Children are often the victims of a difficult, distressing separation. We provide the means for distressed parents to;
Reconnect with themselves and society
Remain relevant and connected to their children
Make better life choices
