We are the voice of the separated dad that agencies and government listens to.
Dads in Distress Support Services (DIDSS) is engaged in various endeavours to improve outcomes for separated parents and their families. We have seen the need to get involved and work constructively with government departments and networks, community agencies and initiatives.
While you might be doing it tough right now, having major difficulties with the system causing you great distress, you can stay focussed on your situation addressing the things you CAN change, knowing that others are addressing the issues within the system that seem to be working against you.
DIDSS staff, and particularly State project managers Laurence Anderson and Phil York are increasingly involved in a huge collaborative effort involving a variety of professionals and organisations who genuinely care and are deeply passionate about making Australian families and communities stronger and more resilient.
In this section we want to keep you up to date with some of those initiatives. There may even be a way you can get involved.
