On behalf of the National Council for Children Post-Separation(NCCPS) and the National Child Protection Alliance (NCPA) we would like to extend our sympathies to the family and friends of the late Barbara Holborow OAM.

Known as the Kids Champion, Barbara’s legacy was her commitment to children’s rights. Barbara dedicated her life to helping children and making their world a safer place.

We will be forever grateful for the advice and time she dedicated to children and assisting us in our cause.

Barbara Holborow is irreplaceable – her work, her passion and her dedication cannot be replicated. She will be missed greatly by all.

The National Council for Children Post-Separation represents more than 3000 concerned parents, legal experts, academics, domestic violence workers, men’s anti-violence groups, health professionals, journalists, authors, counselors and members of the public from around Australia who are seeing consistent failures in the Family Law system to protect children and promote their well-being post-separation.

NCCPS mission statement is to:

  • raise public awareness about the impact of the Family Law Act on children
  • facilitate changes to the Act which will give children the best chance of becoming happy, healthy adults after parental separation
  • bring attention to the Family Court culture which our members routinely see contributes to the Court’s failing in their duty of care towards children from domestic violence or abusive backgrounds

The Council’s primary task, raising public awareness about these issues through the media, is implemented through its Safer Family Law Campaign. 

It’s secondary task is lobbying politicians, promoting judicial professional development and liaising with and seeking advice and support from other organizations interested in children’s safety and well-being post-separation.
