Child Contact Centres
A contact centre is a neutral place where children of separated families can enjoy contact with their non-resident parents and sometimes other family members, in a comfortable and safe environment.
When parents are no longer able to communicate, Child Contact Centres and services provide a neutral place for children to meet the mother or father who no longer lives at home with them. Child Contact Centres won’t take sides. They will simply operate in the best interest of your child. They are child centred environments that provide toys, games and facilities that reflect the diverse needs of children affected by family breakdown. Contact Centres cover a spectrum of facilities for separated families, offering support such as:-
- Supported and supervised contact
- Supervised contact assessment
- Indirect contact
- Escorted contact
- Life story/identity contact
