Children’s Contact Service

A Children’s Contact Service provides a safe and relaxed family atmosphere where children from separated families can connect with both parents. It is a Centre especially designed for adults and children to play together, read stories or just sit and talk in a pleasant, home-like environment.

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.
