During relationship breakdowns, it is important the children maintain contact with both parents.
A number of our members work as volunteers at a Relate Child Contact Centre, the centre is open twice a month.
Referrals are received from the Courts and local Solicitors, couples can also self refer for supervised contact during difficult periods often when the parents do not want to meet.
The Centre is a stepping stone during troubled times, and a starting point to making independant arragements for contact in future.
The volunteers provide an impartial, non confrontational environment for contact with the absent parent. A very rewarding service, with regular success stories of familes moving on to make their own arrangements.
