Child contact centres

When couples separate or divorce, it can become difficult for the parent who moves out of the family home to maintain a relationship with their children.

Contact centres have been set up to provide a warm, safe, neutral environment where a parent who isn’t resident in the family home can talk and play with their child/ren and need not meet their partner. They aim is to provide short-term help and support towards establishing or maintaining meaningful contact between child and the non-resident parent.

Mothers’ Union members help by volunteering at these centres, offering a friendly point of contact to all parents and children who use them.

Please seek advice regarding appropriate Safeguarding procedures to follow.
