There are two main types of child contact service:
Our supervisors are trained to deal effectively with the parents of vulnerable children and they will act swiftly to ensure that the wellbeing of a child is protected. The contact visits are planned and closely monitored usually lasting for short periods. Our contact centre staff and supervisors will receive copies of any court judgements and relevant documents about the family’s case and notes will be made about the visit in order to properly assess progress over time and to plan an appropriate way forward for the family.
Supervised contact can be used to re-introduce parent and child when there has been a long gap in contact.
The visiting parent, child and family will be provided with a separate room away from other families and the environment will provide entertainment for the children.
There may be more than one family using the Centre at the same time.

Family disputes that are resolved through mediation are cheaper, quicker and according to academic research, less acrimonious than those that are settled through the courts."
