Positive Powerful Parents Victoria

Positive Powerful Parents (PPP) is a self advocacy group run by and for parents with an intellectual disability. If you are a parent with an intellectual disability, contact us. If you have kept your children, tell us how you have been successful. If you haven’t kept your children, come along too. There are plenty of us who have not kept our kids. You are not alone!!!

We want people to join our group because:

  • Being a member of the Positive Powerful Parents Self Advocacy Group Makes you feel that you are not alone

Our Issues

The issues PPP care about include:

  • Parents with a disability not being able to keep their children
  • Teaching child protection workers that we can learn with the right support

Self Advocacy Matters

Self advocacy matters because:

  • We need a voice so parents at long last can stand up and say how they really feel without fear of discrimination

  • We think that parents with an intellectual disability can be successful parents

  • We are developing decision making skills to use in everyday life
