Children's Contact Service

A service providing safe and positive contact arrangements for children to spend time with their parent or other significant person.
The Children's Contact Service makes it possible for contact arrangements to take place with a minimum of stress both for children and their parents. It can also help with establishing or building a relationship between a child and parent when there has been a period of limited or no contact.

Services Include:
  • planning and setting up of contact arrangements
  • facilitated changeover to enable the child to be transferred smoothly from one parent to the other at contact times
  • supervised contact visits to enable child and visiting parent to enjoy quality time together
  • separate appointments for both parents
  • an established children's centre with age appropriate toys, games and equipment
  • practical, sensible security including separate entrances and exits for each parent

Advantages of Using the Service
- contact can occur using an independent third party
- parents do not have to deal directly with each other
- it provides a relaxed, safe and neutral environment for children and parents
