Overview

A Children’s Contact Service centre provides a safe and relaxed family atmosphere in which children from separated families can connect with both parents.

When there has been a long period of separation, the centre provides the space and the expertise to assist the children and adults to get to know each other again. The centre also assists grandparents, and others caught in the dispute between the parents, to continue or re-establish relationships that are important to the children.

Supervision is unobtrusive, yet with trained workers who are also quick to support a child’s comfort should a difficult or tense situation arise.

Who is it for?
